    Unanswered: RunApp Action

    I created a database for my dept to use and I have Labels pointing from Access to Word. I wrote a macro using the Run App action and file path
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\WINWORD.exe. this works fine execpt for those whose file path is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\WINWORD.exe.
    Can someone help me? What do I do so that everyone can access this file even though we have different paths to Microsoft Word.

    Use the file scripting object to check whether the path exists, and choose the other if it doesn't.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Thanks for your quick response. Unfortunately, I'm quite new to this and so I'm not sure how/where to write the File script Object
