To save document in Word instead of WordPad

  LAP 18:15 08 Apr 2007

Can you please help a work colleague. Using Internet Explorer he opens a work learning program at work when he saves this it is saved in Word.

But when at home it saves in WordPad which he does not like. He states he is not given a drop down box ie to select Word. What does he need to do? Thank you.

Has he got an Office Suite installed on his home PC?

Thanks for reply. I'm emailing that to him right now

A friend has created a Frame 5 columns by 32 rows on Landscaped paper A4 and inserted only text. Some of the columns have different size boxes in. He then copies and pastes this into Publisher, but the columns and rows do not paste correctly.

Using the frames in publisher is not an option as this is not flexible enough for what he is doing.

Any ideas how he can do this? Thank you.

I think he needs to download Open Office which is compatible with MS Office.

pj123, thanks for the reply. I see it is a free download. What does he have to do, once downloaded?

Surely he should not have to download another program - albeit free - when he's got MS Word installed. Cannot he "browse" in order to save in Word?

Don't think Works has Word - only Office has this prog?

  LAP 19:44 10 Apr 2007

oldbeefer2 he states he has Microsoft Word installed on his computer. When he wants save part of his 'work' it only gives him the option to save in WordPad. Is there anything he can alter to change this?
