No, you're not really doing anything wrong. The translation from one program to another is not perfect. Features are different & those that are similar are often implemented in vastly different ways.
If you want someone who does not use Pages to see your document as you intended, export or print it as a PDF before sending.

The answer depends on what that format is that you are losing.
You need to be more specific so we can suggest a solution.

I created a 2 page table document:
1st, in the .doc format, it is now 3 pages instead of 2.
2nd: the spacing between headers and table is different (which caused the 3rd page)
3rd: the text box I inserted after the header on the first page now is above the header yet text box i inserted after the header on the 2nd page stayd in the correct place.
Any thoughts? Thank you,

1. Always use "Exactly" when setting line spacing
2. Everything else could be due to the way you have structured your document, which we can't see
If you like, click on my blue name and email me the file and I'll see what I can do.

Hi Peter, thanks for the offer of help. I can't send the file due to sensitivity of the material. However, I did go and look to change the setting line spacing to "Exactly." When I have the need to use Pages, I am often teaching myself as I go along, i.e., video tutorials at Apple.com, google, this forum, etc, as I did when creating this table /document. Taking yr advice, I went to make that change but I do not see anywhere any setting for spacing that gives me choices that included "exactly." Would you provide me with the pathway, please. Thanks very much.

Inspector > Text > Text > Line > click on double arrows under field > Exactly
