Default Why can't I get Multiple instances of word?

Sorry Mr. Mayor;

Outlook does not work as you stated.

Outlooks File menu does not contain an entry to access Word.

Go ahead and try to find an access to word from Outlook.

If you find a link from Outlook to Open a Word document,
Please show me how.

You can not access a Word document while using Outlooks emails use of that
version of Word. Again; Outlooks File menu does not have a link to Word.

I hope you understand what I am trying to do. It is simple and can not be
done.

Please try it and you will see.

Laverne R. George

Call me if you would like.

Thanks for trying to help me.

From Outlook, select tools options mail format. Is 'Use Microsoft Word
to edit e-mails' checked. If it is then the file menu should be exactly the
same as it is whenever else you use Word. If it isn't then you are using
Outlook's own editor and Word is a separate application.Neither setting
should prevent you having Word documents and e-mail messages edited at the
same time.

While in Word, check tools options view windows in taskbar, so that
Word will 'appear' as separate applications for each open document.

I agree with what you are saying, but:
When using Outlook and I am editing an email message and go
to the "File" and click on it. I do not see anything that would allow
me to access a Word
document as I am trying to do.

Wouldn't it be nice to have two Microsoft applications work
seamlessly? However, the apps, do not, they are Microsoft apps.

You said "(it doesn't have to be)", I tried to change to HTML but I
could not get it to work.
What do I have to do to invoke the different editor?

Since Outlook does not allow a Word document to be evoked.
I will use my work around, compose in Word and when finished calling
up other Word documents for references,
copy my composed document, exit word, and invoke Outlook and past
my document into Outlooks email.

If Word is the editor for Outlook (it doesn't have to be) then it
is still Word and all Word's functions remain available including
the ability to open another document or documents from the file
menu. If it isn't the editor, then Outlook and Word are completely
separate applications.

I understand that Outlook uses Word as it's editor and I don't
have a problem with it.
My problem is While composing using Outlook why can't I open and
refference written material in a word document. Can a word
document be opened with outlook? I have not seen this within
outlook.

Do you understand what I am trying to do???

If you have Word as your e-mail editor, then you already have Word
open and can open documents from its file menu. If not the editor
it is a completely independent application and unaffected by
Outlook.

While I have Outlook open and composing a email, Why can't I
call Up word.

I have word files that I would like to view sometimes while
composing a letter with Outlook.

Word will not let me do it, Why.
