User Information (2003)
Hello all, does anyone know what the "User Information" tab under the Tools/Options dialogue box does? Is the "Mailing Address" field used as a default entry for printing envelopes or is it for showing the user's address and personal information in the properties dialogue box of every document?

The "Name" field is used to fill the Author property in a document's properties.
The "Name" and "Initials" fields are available as AutoText entries that can be inserted in a document
The "Mailing Address" field is used for envelopes, it is not stored in a document's properties.
All three can be inserted into a document using Insert | Field... - select the UserAddress, UserInitials or UserName field.
