Dear :
I installed office 2007 and I want now to make office 2003 the default instead of office 2007 but without removing Office 2007 just for opening DOC's.

Does my solution on the Excel question not answer this, with the .doc extension as opposed to .xls?

Apologies, I thought you were the poster of a very similar question for Excel earlier today.

Here is the solution:

(1) Double Click 'My Computer'
(2) Click Tools => Folder Options
(3) Click 'File Types' tab
(4) Find DOC and click change.
(5) Browse for 2003 version of Word and select
(6) Repeat steps (4) & (5) for DOT and any other types of Word file that you often use.

Regards
