MS Word "Find File" Missing

I'm using MS Word 6.0.1 on a PowerCenter 150, System 8, usual conglomeration of extensions, and my "Find File" command in Word doesn't function.  It is grayed out on the File Menu and no command will call it.  Any ideas?

1. Is your Find File in the system enabled ?

2. Did you remove all extension, pref files and such and reinstalled word?

Sounds like you have “lost” your find file pref--is it in the Prefs file? You should confirm that it’s there.

Perhaps OS 8 first aid, or better yet, Norton Utilities Disk Doctor to fine tune your system might help. Also, you might try a custom reinstall of Word.

Go into the Extensions Manager and turn on the  "Microsoft Find File Library" extension.  I did this and it started working for me.

Thanks very much.  I suspected I was missing something dead simple, but no one else (including on the MS Word Mailing List) came up with it.
