[Wine] How to open a file in MS Office with double-click

I really enjoy MS Office 2003 on wine (Ubuntu Intrepid). I even figured out how to export files as PDF without distortion. 

There is one thing though I'm not satisfied with: Double-clicking on .doc, .xls. etc.. file starts corresponding office application (Word, Excel) with blank page instead of opening the file. I entered correct path to file but does not work.

Of course it’s not a huge deal since I can go to file>open and then chose the file I want to open, but just was wondering how to make it as comfortable as it is in windows.
