    What Am I Missing?

    There's something about Word's (97) file locations settings that I just don't comprehend:

    My Tools>Options>File Locations>Documents is set to a LAN folder: Hocuments.

    I do a File>Open (with the mouse) and the above folder is opened as default. Now I navigate in the dialog to Hev then click Cancel.

    Now I look at Tools>Options>File Locations>Documents and it is still set to Hocuments (as one would expect), but the VBA statement Options.DefaultFilePath(Path:=wdDocumentsPath) statement returns "Hev". I don't get it.

    I know that opening a folder should change Options.DefaultFilePath(Path:=wdCurrentFolderPath), but wdDocumentsPath??? Ahhhh! Is there really any such thing in Word as a default folder path?

    You are right Kevin.

    A quick look at the MSKB shows two articles, one for Word 2000 and one for Word 97 which confirm this behaviour

    http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/ar...s/Q220/1/93.ASP

    <A HREF="http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q234/4/83.ASP
    " target="_blank">http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/ar...s/Q234/4/83.ASP
    </A>

    What's better it also contains a workaround.

    Cheers

    Cal,

    Thanks for 1) proving I am not going crazy but am somewhat observant and 2) for providing a solution.

    BTW, the second link is dead at MS's end.

    Thanks again!

    I stand corrected. There must have been a bit of navel lint on the end of your url. The link works.
