Hi experts,

I am using Outlook 2003 on Win XP sp2 machine.
After you recive an e-mail with a word or excel attachment, you know how outlook opens those files in a double page format for easy viewing.

I would like to change that if possible. It would be better if i can view the word or excel file with its original form.
