document uploading
I have some great worksheets I would like to upload which are 257kb but as soon as I convert them to 97-2003 they hit the 800kb mark and then are too big to upload. Any suggestions?

Open an old document 2003word, Copy the contents of your new doc into it at save under a new name. I usually start working in an old doc if I want to upload something on eslprintables. I do not know why but it works. I do the same with ppt-s.

And you can compress the pictures,it helps to reduce the size of the file.

I usually compress and/or group my pictures and save them as one picture.

Change your pictures to Gifs before putting them in your document. They take up much less memory usually, though sometimes it affects the colours and clarity of your picture.
