Opening Word without a new document

By D'arcy ·
I had a rather odd request the other day, one of our employees asked if I knew how to have Word and Excel open automatically when he logged in (Startup, I at least know that much!), but to have them minimized and have them open without creating a new document or open any other document. I'm sure there must be a command line switch you can use, but I don't know where to get a list of switches.

Put shortcuts to start Word and Excel in the Startup group and change the shortcut "run" property to minimized. For Word the switch to start with no document is /n and for Excel it is /e. This works in Office 97.

The switches listed above also work in Office 2000. (Give all the points to the person above - I just wanted to mention this.)
