MS Word Doc >> default document.

When I open open up word 2000 I want to be able to set the default document
to have the path and filename in the footer. So every time I open it is
automatically inserted.

MS Word Doc >> default document. You are not advised to change normal.dot (which is the template for
blank documents) to include anything in the footer. For more about the
normal template, see:
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Customization/CustomizeNormalTemplate.htm.

Instead of changing normal.dot, do the following: Create a new blank
document. Add the FILENAME field in the footer (via Insert>Field or
via the Filename AutoText entry). Save the document as a template.

Alternatively, you can use an existing document which already contains
the field as a starting point. Delete the contents that you don't need
and choose File>Save As and specify document template as the file
format.

For more about templates, please see:
