To select Which WORD.

By ksvijayb ·
Hi I have a peculiar scenario.
O/s: Win 2000.
Outlook 97
One of my problematic staff has Outlook 97, Word 97 and Word 2000 installed in his notebook. The issue is that when he opens a word attachment, the system launches Word 2000.
He would like the system to launch Word 97 instead.
Any help to make this possible is much appreciated.

TIA,
VIJAY.

This sounds like a standard association problem. Open the drive that contains the Word documents and click on the VIEW menu item (at the top of the Window.) Select FOLDER OPTIONS and then FILE TYPES. Scroll down until you find the entry MICROSOFTWORD DOCUMENT. Highlight this item then click on the EDIT button to the right. Highlight the word OPEN under ACTIONS. Then click the EDIT button below. In the APPLICATION box, the path currently goes to the Word 2000 program. Use the browse button to change this to the Word 97 program, then save the changes you just made. Good luck.
