My friend has just sent me the details of how to get to the holiday villa, where we plan to meet for a holiday next month. October
I downloaded the attachment, but I cannot open it! My pc tells me ''cannot load Word for Windows 6.0 files''

No matter wher I choose to save the file, when I try to open it the message is the same? :tazz:

I have Windows XP

Regards

It took 3 attempts to get the page. First two copy and paste, were given the ''no such page'' although I had a choice of things brought up. Not what I wanted.

3rd attempt copy and paste, and we were there. Download!! Files opened up. I have also been able to open a number of files dormant for years on my pc with same problem, but did not want to delete them they contained so much work.

Now I can read then again :tazz:

Thanks Keith. Go to the top of the class
