Any time Word or Outlook is opened the following box(window) opens:

FILE CONVERSION _ STMWORD.DOT

Select the encoding that make your document readable.

_ Windows(default) _ MS-DOS x Other encoding Language selection box
Japanese (Shift - JIS)


then a box with squares below

If Windows is selected and Western European in the language box, it always comes back to the above the next time Outlook ot Word opens.

It sounds as if the option 'Confirm File conversion at open' is set. In Word 2007 it is under 'Advanced'.

Sorry, I thought it was Word X (an early Mac version).

Look in Tools/Options. Without actually running up my system with a pre-2007 version, I can't say for certain which tab of the Options dialogue it is on. However, the checkbox wording is the same or very similar.

I was tediously going through the steps, and when I got to Word add ins, I let "Fix-It" take over. It disabled all add ins, and that fixed the problem. Thanks.
