Using Word with Outlook 2002

  Tycho 17:56 02 Oct 2004

Some time ago I bought myself an iPaq PDA it came with a CD containing the necessary sychronisation software and a copy of Outlook 2002. I duly install everything on my system which runs W2K and all seems well except...

I can't use Word as my email editor. The option to do this under Options Mail format is greyed out and there seems to be nothing that I can do about it.

I should have metioned that I am using Office 2000 and, therefore, Word 2000

I have just discovered that you need to use the verion of Word which matches the installed version of Outlook.

This is just a guess but the problem might be due to having installed Outlook and Word into different folders within C:\Program Files so that Outlook cannot detect that Word is installed.

Normally, with the 2002 applications, "Winword.exe" and "Outlook.exe" would both be in:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\
