I am running XP and have MS Word 2002 installed.For a long time I couldnt open a lot of attachments, and got this error msg.
" This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the "Folder Options" control panel.

I forwarded the attachment across the street. my friend opened it and sent me the results.

Bottom line. He said,and proved that MSWord 1997-to2003 would'nt open it, but his 2010 version did. He sugested that I check around and see if there is something I can download that will let me open attachments like these.

The 100+$ for the new version of MS word could better be spent on my Great Grand Children.

Any Ideas---Any Help
