Setting LibreOffice to save in MS Office format automatically

It may be noted that LibreOffice or OpenOffice is compatible with MS Office but not the other way round. MS Office package cannot open a file from LibreOffice or OpenOffice which means that LibreOffice/OpenOffice is better in handling file format!
Incidentally we can save our working files automatically in MS Office format. The following steps can be taken to set this preferences.
  1. Go to Tools in the LibreOffice file that you are working with and select the Options at the choices at the bottom.

  1. Click on +sign of Load/Save>General.
  2. Select the format option from Always save as setting from the dropdown list to MS Word 97/2000/XP/2003. Confirm your option by clicking OK.
