Open Microsoft Office Document in Wine Word; Microsoft .doc Files; Open With

Create a new file.
gedit ~/.wine/WORD
Paste this script:
#!/bin/sh
QUICKPARLOCATION="C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office12\\WINWORD.EXE"
PARAM=`winepath -w "$*"`
wine "$QUICKPARLOCATION" "$PARAM"
exit 0
Save the file. Make it executable:
chmod +x ~/.wine/WORD
In Nautilus, right click on a doc document (for example, myfile.doc) and select Properties. Select the "Open With" tab and "Add" a custom command:
/home/YOURUSER/.wine/WORD
Now doc files will open in Microsoft Office Word. NOTE: For opening xls files in Excel, see http://darklaunch.com/2009/11/06/open-microsoft-office-document-in-wine-word-excel-doc-xls-open-with
