    Drag and drop eml to Word in Office XP (10)

    I could drag and drop from an eml file to a Word doc with office 2000 but I cannot do this in Word XP (10). I can save the eml as a txt and then move the txt to a doc. Does any one know how to do this directly? TIA

    Not sure what newsgroups have to do with this. A newsgroup saved to disk has the extention .nws.

    Anyway, you're saving email messages to eml files and are dragging and dropping them from ?? to Word.

    When I drag and drop an eml from Windows Explorer to Word 97, I get an email object displayed as an envelope icon. D-clicking the icon opens the mail message.

    When I do the same thing with Word 2002, I get the same results.

    Thanks for the reply. I was not trying to save the message as an eml. I wanted to block and move the body of the message. I don't need the header info. This is a private list newsgroup. I could drag and drop with 97 and 2000 but so far I have been unable to directly move to 2002.
