Client problem with opening Office documents in Office 2007 client from SharePoint


I recently had a few users have issues with opening Office documents in their office 2007 client – this seems to be related to a Office 2007 client configuration application setting called – Allow Background open of web pages. Which would need to be enabled on the clients machine

Open the Office 2007 client  (Word/Excel)

Click the Office button

Then click Word Options

Then click Advanced in the left pane

Then select the Allow background open of web pages

Then click OK.

The documents will now directly open from SharePoint Smile
