how to open this attachment?

it's a seating plan for a meal at a restaurant; called "sitting plan 54.docx".
It was sent to my friend who is arranging the dinner and as she couldn't work out how to open it I suggested she forward it to me. I can't open it either! What is a DOCX file? Attempts to open it produce an error message ".....Create an association in the Set Associations control panel" but DOCX isn't in the list there, so I can't change its association.
My friend's OS is XP,mine is Vista

It's a Word 2007 document and you'll need click here to open it.

thanks very much, VoG™. Saved my bacon!
(I'm still on Word 2003 and intend to remain there)

Very wise - I have had Office 2007 for over a year now and I still struggle to find what I want in Excel which I use an awful lot. Doing anything in Word 2007 other than just typing is a nightmare!
