Hi, We are using MS Office 2010 and are on TimeMatters/Billing Matters 10.0 SP3 Hotfix 1011 .

We have a lot of merge templates and whenever we run them it saves the documents as .DOC file extension presumably because we have DOC entered for the setting "Set default extension for saving Documents" (File --> Set up --> General --> User Level --> Forms --> Select Form Type = Documents --> General tab).

Is there any way we can have the resulting documents be saved as a .docx instead? when we first upgraded to Office 2010 we were told to enter in DOC in this setting.

Any help is appreciated.

You can change the setting to DOCX. Most firms prefer to have things saved as DOC to improve compatibility.
