Specs: Windows XP
My company has a file on an internal site with .data extension. I need to associate it so when you click the file link on the site it opens it in MS word.

I have got it working with firefox but when IE opens it just displays code and symbols. I have even used assoc/ftype to for association types but still not working. How can I get IE to open this file in Word?

I had a previous thread months ago but been too busy to look into it until now:

Please help! Cheers.
