Do all of your word files open in excel? If so what you must do is hold shift and right click on a word document. You will now see a menu option 'open with'.

Select choose program.

Select 'Word' in the list and check the option to always use this program. Click 'OK' and from now on your problem should be solved.

Hope this helps
