Windows 7: Office 2010(Win7, 64bit) won't open Office 2007(WinXPr3 32 bit) files

Office 2010(Win7, 64bit) won't open Office 2007(WinXPr3 32 bit) files

Just bought a new laptop with Windows7 64bit installed-my first exposure to Windows7. I had Office 2007 installed on my old Dell 32 bit machine. I had also recently pruchased Office 2010 and installed that on my new machine.

Now, when I try to open those 32bit 2007 files with 64bt 2011, Iget an error message that "no picture file is available", or words to that effect. When I try to "open with", the only option displayed is "Microsoft Office" with an icon that looks like a picture file. When I try to browse to the proper office program(Excel, for example), there are none of teh Office suite programs displayed, only "Microsoft Office".

I can navigate seperately to the proper progran, Excel, etc., and drag the file into the application, and it opens, and all seems to work OK. I "save as" the proper application file, but it still will not open with double-click on the file name.

I have not seen this particular item in the forums and would appreciate very much some help in fixing this issue.

Thanks,

Grubby

This doesn't address my problem. I know how to do file associations. The problem is that when I try to navigate to a Microsoft Office application, nothing shows up in the list, except a "Microsoft Office" icon. The "navigate to" function does not navigate within Microsoft office suite of applications.
