    Want to Delete a Comment in New Document (Word 97)

    How can I remove a Comment that always exists in every New Document created? It has the initials and name of the former owner of this system that I'd rather not see. I've disabled the ShowTip popup but I would like to remove this embedded Comment entry permanently.

    TIA,
    Dan

    Is the comment in the text of every new document?

    It sounds like the comment is in the Normal.dot template. You could edit the file Normal.dot (use Windows Explorer to search for it if you don't know where it is). Then View/Comments. If there are any comments in the template you will be able to see them. Easiest to delete them if you re-enable the ShowTip pop-up for now. Then you can right click the highlight in the template and select Delete Comment. (If you find that View/Comments is greyed out, there are no comments.) Then save and close the template.

    Glad to be of service! It's rare enough that I actually know the answer to some of the questions posed.
