All my files and folders, whether in Word, Excel or PowerPoint, appear in
reverse alphabetical order (e.g., when I click the "Open" button on the
standard toolbar, the dialogue box opens, but all the files are listed in
reverse alphabetical order). This just occurred yesterday, and I have no
idea what cause it. Help?

When the folders are shown, click at the top of the column.

Got it

I know what you are talking about...

1) In word (or other office ap) click open
2) On the white space where you pick the file right click
3) You should see the option "Arrange Icons By" with an arrow
4) Scroll to the arrow, select "Name"

Bugged me so much when it happened to me, some how this must have been switched to something else!

Got WHAT?
Posted and mailed

To whom are you talking and about what?
The "forum" that you are posting in leaches off the Microsoft News servers
in order to make it look far busier than it really is. Everyone who uses the
MS News servers sees your post on it's own - we have NO IDEA what you are
talking about and to whom you are talking.

This is not your fault - the fault lies with the forum owners who do not
explain to members that their posts end up on global Usenet newsgroups.
If you MUST continue to post in this "forum" then please at least quote the
post you are replying to, and do NOT change the subject line.

You would be far better off however, using a news reader and subscribing to
these news groups direct.
