Hello,

I have a new Dell computer that came installed with Windows 7 and Microsoft Works. I installed Word 2007 since all my previous work was done on this program. When I try to open an e-mail with an attachment showing "DOC", it immediately tries to open it in Works, but gives me an error and won't open. I couldn't even open a document sent to me where the woman used Windows 7 and Word 2007 to create the document. What can I do to be able to open these documents?

If can can do this
- save the file
- launch word 2007
- use File - Open option and open the saved document

Then all you have to do is associate file type doc to word

here is some help on that
