To erase file history in MS Word 2003, you need to do it from Registry.Heres how:-

Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe and press ENTER

Navigate to the following location:
Quote:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Office \ 11.0 \ Wordview \ Data
In the right-pane, delete the value named Settings

This erases the File names MRU in Word Viewer 2003.

Exit the Registry Editor

Thats it !!

If you need to remove a single item or selected item than Browse to the following registry key and delete the items you want to remove manually:
Quote:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Word\File MRU
Delete the entries and then restart Word.
