Converting Word doc files in Book designer

Hello,

I am trying to open doc files in book designer but it insists on using ms word.
I have open office installed but i cant find an option in designer to use open office instead.

Is there an option somewhere that i have missed?

Could i download ms docviewer and it will use that instead?

thanks for your time

Martin

Sorry I didnt explain that very well.

I meant that within book designer i cannot open word (doc) files as it insists on using word to presumably convert from doc format to something designer can open.
