saving docs -same title for everyfile?



  • 1. Word 2007 Document not opening as saved.
    I have a laptop that has Vista on it and I did something in Word 2007 and saved it to my usb portable stick drive. When I went later and put the usb drive in to bring up my document it doesn't open up properly. There are two documents I'm having problems with, one when I open it at the bottom where it shows how many pages the document is it says 800+ pages which is obviously not correct and the other shows 4,000+ pages. Now the one document is longer than the other but obviously not as long as it saying it is. I noticed the first so many pages there is nothing there and then when I do get to a page with something on it it does have I believe some of what was saved along with a bunch of other characters and just a bunch of other stuff that shouldn't be there. I do believe in all those pages what I saved is there scattered about but I don't know what happened and what to do to get it to open as I saved it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks Glenn

  • 3. Change Date Format 10/26/09 to 26/10/2009
    I have several large documents that need the date format changed from10/26/09 to 26/10/2009. All the dates are different and are not field entries but typed text. Is there an easy way to change them throughout the documents? -- marcia
  • 4. find/replace frames
    Is there a way you can use the Find command to find any kind of frame in a Word document, without giving specific attributes, and then replacing with no frame? I can't see how to do this in the Find/Replace dialog. Ideas would be most appreciated.
  • 5. customizing sequential numbers in Word
    I've read through the stings and have a general idea how to create sequential numbering using a Form in Word. The form I've created, which I saved as a templete, is for data requests. So, anytime a requester opens the template, a new tracking number would be created. I was hoping to customize the numbering scheme so anytime someone opens a template it would generate a tracking number with the person's intials followed by the date and the next number..e.g., DM_Oct132009_1 and so on. This is just an example, I'm not sure if this is possible..any recommendations?

saving docs -same title for everyfile?

Everytime i try to save a doc in Word, the same author name and same title of 
the doc are the used. this occurs for every file being saved in Word. This is 
a problem because the name is not me. i think maybe because the first word 
doc that i opened was from the person whose name is appearing as the author.  

I go in under properties and change each file after saving it originally but 
then if i edit the file at a later time and click save, the author and title 
of the doc revert back to the original wrong ones. 

I have tried to fix this by going under -  tools, options, and setting the 
user info with my information but it didnt work. 

any help/advice would be much appreciated.  thanks.

Does the document contain a field which sets the author name and
title? For example, a field such as { AUTHOR "David Stenn" } would
change the "Author" entry of the File>Properties dialog box to "David

Here's how to find out: With the problem document open, click ALT+F9.
Word displays field codes. Can you see one or more fields similar to
the one in my example above? If you can, simply remove the text,
including the quotation marks around it. (Of course, you can remove
the entire field, if you wish, but then the data will no longer
display in the document.)

When all of the above fields (if any) have been modified, press ALT+F9
again to hide field codes. Select the entire document and press F9 to
update field display.

Now you should be able to change the name and title of the document by
using the following procedure: On the File menu, click Properties.
Click the Summary tab. Enter the correct information, and then click
OK. Save the file.

The above must be made on a document-by-document basis. If documents
were created from a template (as opposed to using File>Save As with an
existing document), you should modify the template as well.

If this is happening with every document, then the title information is
coming from the template, which is what you need to modify. The author
information will come from the User Information tab of Tools | Options.

There may be a simpler way.  I have had this problem and fixed it once I
realized that a lot of information about a document was store in Properties
(File, Properties).  Whatever is listed as the Title, Author, etc in that
original document, including a template, will be carried along into every
new document that is created from it.  Thus, when I open a template I
created from a Word file years ago, Word will suggest the name of that
original document as the name for the new one.  I fixed this by opening the
template (a *.dot file), opening the Properties window and deleting the
Title and any other extraneous information, and then saving the changes.
Now when I save the newly-created document Word suggests a name consisting
of the first few words of the new document.  The same procedure works for
documents that are not actual Word templates, such as any Word document you
are using as forms for creating new ones.  Hope this helps.

Two problems:

desktop, I get an error message "the file xyz is not 

- I can create documents, but when I try to save them I 
get the error message "The file Normal already exists. Do

Hope someone can help me - I'm really stuck not being
