MS Word 2010 - How to change the default Zoom when opening.

We are running Office 2010 on a Windows 7 workstation.

When a user opens an attachemnt, or any Word doc the zoom is defaulted to 100%. I need this to force all zooms to 200% (or page with width would be prefered).

How can I do thia without the user having to set it everytime?

Thank You!!!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Create the following auto Macros:

Sub AutoOpen()
ActiveWindow.View.Type = 3 'print layout
ActiveWindow.View.Zoom.Percentage = 200
End Sub
 
Sub AutoNew()
ActiveWindow.View.Type = 3 'print layout
ActiveWindow.View.Zoom.Percentage = 200
End Sub
