      before you go spending money on word, download the windows ersion of www.openoffice.org and try it out on your documents. it may be just fine for what you do, in which case you've just saved a bunch of money.

      if it's not, *then* you can buy ms office.

      Refer to this:

      www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/TechNet/prodtechnol/win98/maintain/assoc.asp

      It will explain how to change the association.

      I bet it was opening up your documents in
      MS Wordpad - that is the default file
      association if you don't have MS Word in the
      system.

    • i'll check out open office. thanks

      You need to change your file associations.
      MS Windows assumes .doc mean MS Word. You
      need to associate it with WordPerfect.

      I have never had a problem with any document
      myself. My friend was using some esoteric
      features of an old word processor. He
      can't even open it up in a modern version of
      MS Word without problems.

      You probably should have gotten a MAC.

      If you care to, download OpenOffice. I've
      never been a fan of WordPerfect.

      If you're a professional in doing typesetting
      I recommend FrameMaker, but it's like $700
      now. FrameMaker is what I always used in
      college and nothing comes close to it.

      Oh, man, it just ocurred to me.

      You just need to change your file associations.
      Don't you have an IT department? If you do,
      fire them!

    • thanks--and it sounds like we also have had similar problems as your freind. i am not familiar with linux other then it being a competitor to msft--
      i just got into using a computer a couple of years ago, and feel like i am still in grade school with regards to understanding the technology--

      What is your client?

      I use KMAIL under Linux and I've never had
      a problem with it opening up a MS Word
      document. I use OpenOffice 1.1.

      I have heard reports of problems with
      equations. My friend tried to convert his
      thesis to OpenOffice for the hell of it,
      and it mangled some of the forumulas. The
      document was ni 5.something, written in 1995
      or so.
