    Are you saying that the entire page shows a grey background?

    If so, check what your Normal style is set to in the template, or your character/font default.

    If you're changing the Normal style in a single doc and have Word set to update styles from the template, you're overwriting the change each time.

    Jessica Thanks so very much, you are a love....This is essentially what I did, although it had no 'word options' I went into a 'normal' and killed "turn off the Prompt before saving Normal template option.
    To turn off this option, click the Microsoft Office Button, click Word Options, (which I dont have ) and then click Advanced. Under Save, clear the Prompt before saving Normal template check box. If this check box is already clear, or if clearing it does not resolve this issue, then there may be a problem with Word."
    You remind me of the old days of computing, when one could ask a question, and always get help, thats right on...thanks rick
