Hi Nayankia,

As Keith Cronin and Geoff Hart have already mentioned you can modify the
Normal template. However, it's not really a good idea.

Where are templates stored?
(I'm using Word 97)
1. Tools->Options
2. Select the File Locations tab, the "User Template" option displays the
path Word uses to obtain templates. It should be where you're is

Setting up templates
Word can crash, and it can corrupt documents. Sometimes a solution used is
to delete When you go back into Word, Word automatically

If you're wanting a template that can be used by others it's a good idea to
set up your own templates. Templates are an excellent place to store styles,
autotext and macros, frequently used text - for example, header and footer

Open a template using File->Open (don't double click on the filename because
it'll open a copy of the template).
Saving the template for the first time File->Save As (ensure that "Save as
type" is set to Document Template).

There's a Word list:
mailto:word-pc-unsubscribe-request -at- liverpool -dot- ac -dot- uk to leave
mailto:word-pc-subscribe-request -at- liverpool -dot- ac -dot- uk to join
(no subject or command text required)

Hope this helps.
