In need of desperate help :)

Hi guys.
I'm stuck with listeners currently.
I've created a frame and canvas. On the frame I have a menu bar, which when I select OPTIONS --> VIEW REPORT if loads up a word file I have into Word. I have the code for loading it now (thanks to Cindy), and the project compiles fine and runs fine. But when I select the VIEW REPORT option with the mouse nothing happens. I'm also trying to be able to load if with CNTRL & V too, but didn't have much luck succeeding.
Please can someone help me. Many thanks.
Here's the frame and canvas codes as these are most relevant for this question. I've done quite a bit of my project, but need to get this working before I can realistically attempt any more. Thanks.

WOW! That's a lot of code and work just to use a menu item. How about something like this.

As far as the accelerator:

It's actually part of a 2D assignment I have to do for tomorrow morning (not a prayer ), and all that code was for the whole menu (which incidently only half of which works yet ).
I'm just useless with listeners...and java as a whole
Thanks! I'll try it

Sadly it didn't work (my coding is beyond help )
Thanks anyway!
I agree. Here's the link:
