    I believe that the document properties in Word 2007 (especially author) is being picked up from the login name in windows XP. I know how to change the document properties on a single document, however, I would like to know how to change the document properties for WORD -- period. In other words, I don't want my login name to be the author, I want my REAL name to be the author. Also, my company name is NOT in my login info, so there is no company coming up, I would like to change these properties so that everytime I start a document it's already there. So far everytime I change the properties, then close the document and start a new one, it goes back to the original. (I assume this problem is being perpetrated throughout the Office Suite...)

    Is this an option?

    Thanks for any information about this you can provide,

    With Word 2007 open and maximised, click on the Office Button, top left of sceen.

    Bottom right hand coner click on Word Options

    Click on Popular

    In the section Personolize your copy of Microft Office, put the name and intiails you want to appear in your documents.

    Click on OK

    Close Word 2007

    Open Word 2007 and try inserting author into a new document.

    You should find it works OK

    Yes, that indeed solves the author problem! Is there a similar way to be able to keep the other fields in the document properties section permanent (ie: company, etc)?

    Thanks!

    Click on the Office Button, top left of sceen.

    Select Prepare, Properties

    Click on the dropdown icon to the right of Document Properties...

    Click on Advanced Properties...

    Select the Summary tab and Bob's yer uncle i.e. follow your nose :)

    Hope that helps

    I have tried that multiple times. It will only work on the document that I am using at the time. After I close word, it's gone. In fact, sometimes it won't even put in what's there to begin with! :(
