    I am using Word 2007. Each time I open a .doc or .docx file, the date modified changes, as displayed in Windows Explorer. This happens when I just choose file open, and then exit, without ever doing anything with the file.

    Previous versions of Word would appear to do the same thing. However, when the file was closed, the date modified in windows explorer to revert back to the previous date. Word 2007 causes the current date accessed to become the date modified.

    This makes it very confusing, as it looks as though I am making changes to the file, when I am not.

    Help appreciated...marty
