I am wondering if there is a way to edit the "File as Type" file list that appears when attaching a file in Outlook 2003.  In Outlook 2000, the File as Type list contained an option to limit Excel files.  In Outlook 2003, there is no such option.  I would like to be able to add the Excel Document option back into this list.  Just need to know if this is possible, and if so, how to edit this list.  Thanks.

Hi, arkhaminmate11n

Hmmm, when I use Outlook 2003 the "Files of type" menu does include Excel.  What are you using as the mail editor in Outlook, Outlook's built-in editor or Word?

I have Word 2003 as the default editor.  When I uncheck the boxes to use Word as the default editor, I do see Excel Documents in the list.  Is there a way to use Word as the default editor AND have Excel Documents in the File As Type list?

Keeping in mind that Word is not an area of expertise for me, I'm not aware of any way to add to the "Files of Type" dialog-box.
