Summary

The "More Information" section of this article discusses various methods you can use to change the Company property in Microsoft Word.

More information

To change the Company property for a single document:
  1. On the File menu, click Properties.
  2. Click the Summary tab.
  3. In the Company box, select the information, and delete it.
  4. Enter new information into the box, or leave it blank.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Save the document.
NOTE: The property will be changed for that document only. To change the property for any template (not including the Normal template), follow these steps:
  1. On the File menu, click Open.
  2. In the Files of Type list, select Document Templates. In the Look in box, select the location of your template. Select the template you want to change, and click OK.
  3. On the File menu, click Properties.
  4. Click the Summary tab.
  5. Select the information in the Company Property field and delete it.
  6. Enter new information into the field, or leave the field blank.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Save the document.
NOTE: Changing the company property field in the Normal template of Microsoft Word 97 and saving the change will not be reflected in new documents based on Normal.

To permanently change the company property in all user-defined templates and the Normal template in Microsoft Word 97, follow these steps:
  1. Remove Microsoft Word 97.
  2. Use either of the following methods to reinstall Word 97:
    • If you are reinstalling from a compact disc, place the correct information in the Name dialog box.
    • If you are reinstalling from disks, you need to reinstall from a new set of disks, because company information is permanently written to the disks during installation.
