    I'm using Vista Home Edition and Microsoft Word 2007. I used to be able to click on INsert, then Object and choose Wave Sound. Up would pop up my sound recorder .. no problem. Now Wave Sound has disappeared from the Objects list. I checked other MS programs such as PPT and Excel. Same thing! I can open up Sound Recorder on its own though under Start >> Accessories.

    I believe they removed that option in the 2007 series of office. Try this instead.

    Start up Sound Recorder (Start >> Accessories like you said). Record your sound clip and save it to your documents folder.

    Then in Word 2007, Go to Insert, Then Object Then Click on the "Create From File" tab and insert the file you saved in the previous step :)

    Thank you for such a quick response .. i was aware of that option although didn't want to go through all the steps, the other way was so simple. I was not aware, however, that i was looking for an option that didn't exist, at least i know it wasn't me .. thanks again. (y)
