    I have a new Vista laptop which I have networked with my old XP laptop for the transitional period. My Vista machine has M/S works installed. It also has a trial version of M/S Office which I am not familiar with, and which I do not think I am going to use, unless there is reason for me to change my mind. My XP machine has only M/S Works with which I have been very happy. The problem is that when, using my Vista, I access an M/S Word document which is in my XP machine, it opens in MS Office Word. How can I change the default to make the document open in M/S Works Word ? Allan.

    But bear in mind there really is no issue here except that the XP pc is using an earlier version of ms Word is all as Works suite utilizes Ms Word and has for some time.
