File Download Instructions

Portable document files (also known as PDFs or .pdf files) must be opened with Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader.  If you do not have either of these programs installed on your computer, you may download a free version of "Adobe Reader" at http://www.adobe.com by clicking on "Get Adobe Reader."

Microsoft Word documents may have been created in MS Word 2003 (.doc files) or MS Word 2007 (.docx files).
To view, print and copy MS Word documents, even if you don't have MS Word installed, download a replacement for MS Word Viewer 2003 and all previous MS Word Viewer versions, by going to: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=3657ce88-7cfa-457a-9aec-f4f827f20cac&displaylang=en.

Microsoft Excel spreadsheets may have been created with MS Excel 2003 (.xls files) or MS Excel 2007 (.xlsx files).  To open, view, and print Excel workbooks, even if you don't have Excel installed, download a replacement for Excel Viewer 97 and all previous Excel Viewer versions, by going to: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=1CD6ACF9-CE06-4E1C-8DCF-F33F669DBC3A.

For instructions on how to open and save MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 or 2010 files in earlier versions of Office programs, go to:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/924074.

Zip files must be opened with a software utility that decompresses or "unzips" the .zip file; such as PentaZip, PicoZip, PKZip, PowerArchiver, StuffIt, and WinZip.  Zip files contain one or more files that have been compressed to reduce file size or are zipped in order to be posted as one package containing documents that may be in multiple file formats. Windows XP has a basic built-in zip capability so that you can compress and decompress files by using the Compressed (zipped) Folder feature. For instructions on how to create and use compressed (zipped) folders in Windows XP, go to:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306531 and/or how to zip or unzip a file in Microsoft Office 2003 programs, go to:  http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath-help/zip-or-unzip-a-file-HA001127690.aspx.
