When I installed Microsoft Word 97, the Word files took the form of Word. However, when I click on them, they will not open. If I use “Open As” and choose either Word Pad or Note Pad, they will open then. But in the title bar, it shows, for example, W.doc - WordPad. It does not keep the name that I gave it when I Save As. As I type and go to File, Save, I get a message box that says in the Title Bar Unsupported Save For..., and in the box it says: WordPad cannot save this document in its curent format. The documents will be converted to Rich Text Format. I press Okay. Then when I again go to File, Save, I do not get the message box.
How can I make my Word files save in the correct manner and have them open when I click on them? Thanks much.
I have IE6, SP2
