- 1st doc -> test.doc (20MB) save it as test.rtf
- check the size of test.rtf (now the size might have gone down to 400 KB)
- open this test.rtf (with microsoft word) and save it as test1.doc (size will be 400 KB)
By the way microsoft Office is peace of crap just use Open office (Free, Open source and no surprise like this)
I don't have any other quick solution then this but If you have found one then add your comment. I have found this problem with word 2003. In case you have the same problem but diffrent version then just report it as a comment. Thanks...
