    File Open preview not alpha (Word 2002/WIN XP Pro)

    I use Ctrl FO with Preview all the time to open new documents. Suddenly, the documents within their folders are no longer appearing in alphabetical order in the dialog box. The Folders themselves are still appearing correctly. However, if I use Word Explorer, everything is fine with the documents all showing neatly in alpha order. This has only been happening today but it's driving me bananas. I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

    Open the FileOpen Dialog box again and click on the Word "Name" above the filenames. If you find that they are sorted z-a instead of a-z, just click it again. That should set things straight.

    FYI, you can use Ctrl+O to open the same dialog box--one less letter. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
