first comment is good, since you did not give version of office.
If you have 64-bit windows 7 and most office is 32-bit, it may be C:\program files (x86)

Maybe I didn't make myself clear.  I have Windows 7 Pro and I am looking for the executable file THAT WILL OPEN a new Word document.  I am creating a script and I need the path to put in the program.

If the previous comments don't help, then it isn't clear what your context is.
If you're already in a programmatic environment, then something like:
Set doc = objWordApp.Documents.Open("C;\MyFolder\MyDoc.Docx") 

Open in new window

should work

I am using AutoHot Keys and usually, I will use something like:

;This is to open SONAR
^b::
Run, %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Cakewalk\SONAR X3 Studio
Return

This will open a program called Sonar.  I want to be able to open a new Word document by using a combination of hot keys as shown above.

As John-Charles-Herzberg has indicated, the  path to the  executable file depends on the Windows and on the Office version(s() that are installed

This is a better example of what I am trying to do:


;This is to open Microsoft Outlook
^e::
Run, C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14\Outlook.exe
Return

The ctrl key plus the e key opens up Microsoft Outlook
