Creating Word doc from form works in Notes 5.0.2 but not 5.0.11

This developer is wondering why an action to create a Word document from a form (which is itself created in the Notes client) works in Notes R5.0.2 but not R5.0.11.

We have a Microsoft Word document that is in quotation form on the Web, so that overseas sales can download it. The form is created in the Notes client. Once the sales manager approves the sales quote , we generate a Word document and put it in the richtext field. This action works in Notes R5.0.2. But in R5.0.11, the Notes client is not working. The system will display an "Import/Export not configure" error message. Any idea why this is happening? Here is the button action formula:
FileName := "C:\temp\" + @Text(RefNo) + ".DOC"; 
"MicrosoftWord RTF"; FileName); 
@PostedCommand( [EditDocument] );
 @PostedCommand( [EditGotoField]; "attachfile" ); 
( [EditInsertFileAttachment] ; filename;"1"  )
The problem is that the parameters for the @Command([FileExport]) changed for some export formats in Lotus Notes version 5.0.5. The parameter "MicrosoftWord RTF" should be changed to "MicrosoftWord". You might want to check the IBM Technote on this.
