    Windows 95, Word 2000, a saved network document - when I type in the header or footer field it puts squares instead of the letter I'm typing. If I try it from a different computer it works fine. The settings for Word on both computers seem to be identical. Any ideas??

    first see if it works while logged on a different user. If it still doesn't work export the registry section hkeylocalmachine\software\microsoft\office from a machine that it works on, then import the reg file on the machine that you are having the problem

    More than likely, your normal.dot file is using a font in the header or footer that does not reside on your PC. Close Word and rename your normal.dot file to abnormal.dot.
