    Embedded files don't launch (Word 2003/Word 2000)

    I have a document that was created using Word 2000 with Word 2000 documents embedded in it. I have now been migrated to Word 2003 and the embedded Word 2000 docs will not launch and I get an error message saying that the program is not installed. Ironically embedded Excel files in the same document launch fine. I have also been able to create new Word 2003 documents and and embed Word 2000 files in it and they launch fine.

    Any ideas?

    If you select the text/icon representing the embedded document and press Shift+F9, it should have some code name such as Word.Document.8, etc., or something like that. What does your field code look like?
