Change Icon on Word or Excel Files

Hi,suggestions please.

Folder icon pictures can easily be changed (via properties/customize)as a filing aid.

Is here any way of changing the icons on individual files, produced in Word or Excel in a similar simple manner.
(I have only located special software that will change exe. files.)

Instead of working with the original document files you could create shortcuts to them that you would work with. You can easily change the icon for shortcuts.

Thanks, but coctea48 those progs only change folders, or all files of a type extension.

Eric, that seems a possible partial solution, but would not work if the file was transferred elsewhere.
