Opening Files

You’ve already seen that when you start a program in Office XP, a new document opens on the screen. But not every file you work with will be a new file. When you want to work with an existing file, you have the option of opening the document as an Office document, or opening it within the specific application you’ll be using. This section gives you the how-tos for each of those situations.

Opening Files the Office Way

If you want to start right up with the Office document you plan to use, choose the Open Office Document option in the All Programs menu (or in the Office Shortcut Bar). This action brings up the Open Office Document dialog box, which shows all the different application files in the current folder, each with an icon showing which application it belongs to (as shown in Figure 2-5).
