insert CD to Microsoft Office

Every time you try to open an office document (.doc, .xls, ect...) the computer asks for the CD/DVD for microsoft Office. It only happens on a few machines. Is there a fix?

We purchased volume licenses for all machines.

This is because you're trying to do something with the Office programs that is not completed installed on some machines. You can have machines that don't have all the features that you need to use installed. To get rid of this, insert the instalation CD's and install the features that you need.

I wish to install everything from the Office CD/DVD and prevent this issue on some domain computers. Reinserting the CD will allow me to select, via checkboxes, what I want installed above and beyond what is already installed? And I am curious, why would a standard spreadsheet or word document not have the needed software on the computer to just open regularly? There are no real out of the ordinary things we are trying to do in some documents, like macros, mail merges, or anything of the sort.

OK, just updated on some info:

After installation, the other administrator was told to delete the install files. Exactly what you were saying. Some install files were needed to accomodate these files. Thank you so much for the quick response. Looks like you were right on target and I appreciate the info.

Forgive me. I am cleaning up a network that I just got control of yesterday and do I see a mess to overcome. So, your quick response was very helpful.
