Replacing Shell Extension view in MS Office Open F

Hello All,

I am trying to map the database in the form of tree structure similar to windows explorer. I am writing shell namespace extension to view the database in windows explorer and MS Office 2000 Open File dialog.

I have implemented IShellView interface. IshellView supplies my own List view with columns such as ObjectName, version etc. I can see my view correctly in windows explorer and common open file dialog.
Problem is I cannot see my List view in MS Office 2000 Open File dialog even though I can see the virtual folder structure.

Any help on how to make my view appear in MS Office Open file dialog is greatly appreciated.

I don't know if that is related to your problem. If not, it sounds like you might run into it later.
