Default Word docs opening as XML

Hi i hate to ask a stupid question, but i have searched google to find no quick answer.

I have a laptop Win 7 office 2007 that when opening a document from a share opens that word doc as an xml file.

When i moved that doc to another system it opened as a proper word doc.

What am i missing.



Thanks

Word 2007 document formats (docx and docm) are numerous xml files bundled together in a zip file. When you say you are opening it as an xml file, what exactly are you doing? What is the file extension on the document?

Are you opening the file from within Word or are you double-clicking it from Windows Explorer? If you are double-clicking it, what program is being used to open the file?

I am opening the document in word, i just went back there and had a look and what she was trying to open was an xml file. And it did open correctly so maybe it was a glitch in the system. I also recon that i grabbed the wrong doc to test on the other system.

Sorry to waste your time

Thanks for your assistance
