    I was wondering if anybody knew of documentation out there as to how MS Word 2007 references explorer/file viewer when clicking the Open/Save function from the File Menu?

    Could you please specify "references"?

    English is not my main language, I'm afraid.

    Well when I click on Open/Save a file browser comes up. WHat does Word do in the backround that allows for this to happen?

    Are you talking about the code? If so, it calls an open / save dialogue. Nothing too hard, I think. Are you looking for such a code? What programming language do you want it in?

    Mizzle,

    I have a portable version of MS Office however when I click the open function it doesn't work. The reason for that is because I don't have Explorer working.

    If it is working in other programs other than word, then it is the word itself that is not working. That would mean that the portable version you have is not right and you will have to get another one.

    What portable software did you use to put it on ?
