This should’ve been setup automagically at the install of office… [/quote]
Yes, I did… but word and excel don’t seem to show as options. I can save the files then open the office program, and then open the file, but I can’t open it straight from say an email where I want to download the file.
Maybe I need to reinstall windows.[/quote]
Some times you actually need to browse to the executable file of the program itself if something went a bit funny during the install.

[quote]You can do this by starting Excel from the Run dialog box on the

and click OK. This causes Excel to set itself back to “factory
defaults”. You may need to include the entire path to Excel[/quote]
The same should be possible to do with word by replacing Excel with Word
