Office for Mac 2004 store its user data folder in Documents folder as "Microsoft User Data". Anyone know how to change the location of this folder, such as move to Library folder?

Thanks!

The "Microsoft User Data" folder can be moved out of Documents and into"~/Library/Preferences" without any problems.

Well one trick that I discovered while moving my itunes music into a better spot was to use a alias. So you could move it anywhere and make a alias then put the alias in documents. This works, but you still have the file in your documents. Then if you could find a way to make it invisible that would be great.:D
