Question about Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Full Version for PC

2 Answers

Word 2007 saves and closes normal.dotm everytime I close it. It doesn't ask for anything, but it shows as an opened document in Word and start menus list.

    Thanks markwganser,
    I tried that on 2003 and it never worked. I updated to 2007, thought that might fix it. --no... I'll give 2007 a try.. you would think I'd just get used to it.. but it irritates me every time.

Rename all instances of your document template files (Normal.dotm or Normal.dot). This will prevent formatting changes, AutoText entries, and macros that are stored in the global template (Normalm.dot or Normal.dot) from affecting the behavior of Word and documents that are opened.Renaming the template will let you quickly determine whether the global template is causing the issue.

When you rename the Normal.dotm template in Word 2007 or the Normal.dot template in Word 2003 and in earlier versions of Word, you reset several options to the default settings. These include custom styles, custom toolbars, macros, and AutoText entries.

It could mean that the normal.dot file is corrupt.

Try this:

1. Do a search for normal.dot
2. when found, change the name to "normal.dot.old"
3. restart your machine

Good Luck !!!!!!

Word 2007 Has Stopped Working


I'm not sure who provided your original solution, but I do know that if Word doesn't find normal.dot upon starting, it will recreate it. A lot of weird problems in Word are due to a corrupt normal.dot file. (It's called normal.dotm in 2007.)

Here is a Microsoft KB article regarding the global template in Word, with some troubleshooting hints. Please let me know how it goes!
