Mac OS 9 and earlier used type and creator codes to match documents with programs. If you have an unassociated document, it probably doesn't have these codes.

The File Exchange control panel only applies to files you download, or copy from a Windows PC on a network or a Windows (FAT/NTFS) disk. It does not apply to files already on your system; it's just used to "link" new incoming files with their type/creator codes.

For existing files, you'll need to change the creator code for each file. There's a Script for that, and the codes for a Word doc are Type: WDBN and MSWD
