I was working on a friend's computer today. He is using Office XP Pro. Whenever he saves a Word document it only opend in Wordpad. I checked to make sure that he is saving all work as "word docs" Even thee icons appear to be Wordpad docs. Any suggestions?

TIA for any assistance!

Right click the file and choose OPEN WITH and then select Microsoft Word. Make sure to check the box to always use the same application to open these files.
