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 normal.dot is
stored.

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

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
information.

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.
