A friend has an intriguing problem, running Word9 on XP Home.
If you start with a blank page, type some text and print it, all is well.
If you then save it and re-open the file it has about 30 additional lines of text at the bottom, giving what looks a bit like the file location, author etc data which can be selected to be printed with the document. None of these is selected. Where is this coming from?
If these extra lines are deleted, the file prints correctly.
I will be most interested to know the answer.

Sounds like your friend may have inadvertently inserted a field code and now it is part of the normal.dot document. What I would do would be Close Word, then go to start - search - and then type in normal.dot. Right click on normal.dot and rename normal.dot to something else such as normalold.dot. Word will recreate the original normal.dot when you open it. Hope this works.

Oops - I should have said search for normal.dot. When it finds it, highlight then rename. (Wanted to be clearer.)

Many thanks. I have done as you suggested and the problem is completely resolved - even for previously created files.
I am intrigued by the potential for this feature when you do actually want it!
Regards,
Ciobair :)

I meant to say, I actually deleted Normal.dot but I am sure that the effect would be the same.
