    Preview Office 2003 Documents in Vista (2003)

    Has anybody discovered a means of getting a preview of Microsoft Word 2003 documents from within Vista Search?
    Thanks

    From Windows Explorer, Organize>Layout>Preview Pane.

    Thanks John, I've tried that. But I see I forgot to mention specifically that I have not yet installed Office 2007. As such the Preview Pane doesn't produce a preview for me, unless I've selected "Save Preview Picture" in Properties.
    I found a place where somebody has developed a utility which will display C# code in the Preview Pane, and I was hoping that such a utility might have been developed for Word 2003.
    I think my original query was too cryptic and I apologise.
    Jim.

    No need to apologise Jim. Hopefully someone else will have an answer.
