Office 97 Tips
Word has a template file called Normal.dot that is the basis for the default new, blank file. A number of people have experienced problems saving Normal.dot. Here's how it works. If you open Normal.dot, you can make changes and then save the file by choosing File|Save. If you start with a new document, make style changes, and then try to save the file as Normal.dot using File|Save As, Word will refuse to save the file. If you really need to do this, you can save the file as Normal2.dot and then later delete or rename the original Normal.dot and replace it with your new file by renaming Normal2.dot to Normal.dot.
