I missed the original message here, so I may be jumping in and
missing something....but I just opened a new doc built on the
"Contemporary Report" template in Word 7.0 to check it out. The only
gray bars I see that you might be talking about are the style called
"Block Quotation" -- is this the one? If so, that gray bar is the
result of setting up the paragraph style with a vertical gray border.
You can change it in the style dialog by clicking Modify, Border.

"Heading 1" style uses a horizontal shading, available from the same
Modify>Border dialog.

Everything else is clickable, thus a graphic. If your template has
something mine doesn't, I'd like to see it, just out of curiosity.
Another possibility is that something is a "watermark" and thus
appears on every odd page. I didn't see it in the print preview,
though. Look up the word "watermark" in the online help.

Now you've really got my curiosity....
