    Sorting Files in Word File Manager (MS Word)

    I am trying to find a way to sort files in the MS Word File Manger (File/Open or Ctrl + O) by using keystrokes. You can sort the files by clicking on the Name/Size/Type toolbars, but they do not have any accelerator or hot keys. IN IE you can go to View/Arrange Icons/by...

    Any ideas?? Maybe by using CommonDialogs or FileDialog objects??

    Thanks!

    Extremely wide screenshot reduced in size by HansV - please don't post images larger than 640 x 480

    I am getting reports that this will not work in WordXP. You can move from the tools menu to the files menu, but in WordXP there is not an option to sort the files (which is present in Word2000),

    Any other ideas??

    Thanks

    In XP, if you switch the view from list to details, you can sort it by clicking on the column header.

    Oh... I didn't get all the way from Point A to Point B, did I. Hmmm. I think some kind of tool that records clicks and then plays them back might be needed.
