When you save a document in Word 97, certain document properties get automatically populated.
To view the document properties, click Properties on the File menu.
When the document is saved, the Title, by default, is populated with the first line of text from the document.
The Author, by default, is populated with the name that appears in the User Information tab (on the Tools menu, click Options).
The Company, by default, is populated by the company name that was used when Word 97 was installed.
To work around these default settings, follow these steps:
All Document PropertiesTo make sure that all document properties are saved with the properties that you need, on the File menu, click Options. Click the Save tab and select the "Prompt for document properties" option. When you save the document, you can change the Title, Author, or Company to the settings you want for that particular document.
Title PropertyYou can set the default Title for the Normal template or any template you are using by opening the template and changing the Title under File Properties to reflect the title you want when a document is saved.
To modify the template, follow these steps:
Author PropertyYou can set the default Author by changing the name in the User Information tab.
