When you type it in the Title field of the Properties dialog for a new document, then save the document, Word suggests the truncated version (up to the hyphen) as the file name. You can always override that suggestion and include hyphens or any other valid characters at that point, and they'll be used just fine.

When you save a new document, Word uses the Title field, or the first line of the document up to the first punctuation, as the suggested file name. That's what Deborah (the original poster) was asking about.
