    keeping formats (2000)

    What is the best file format to write a Word doc to and then reload, so I can keep the font and paragraph formats, but lose the other info about file creation dates, revisions, authors, etc.? I tried Unicode in .txt and it lost the formats -- .rtf keeps the other info. I don't want to buy a utility. Thxs.

    Not sure I know, but one idea is to try one of the older Word versions. Try Word 2.0.

    What I do is "clone" the document by pretending it's a template. See <!post=Post #85627,85627>Post #85627<!/post> for the VBA code.
