Size of Normal.DOT (Word 97 and >)
<img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers
Is there any adverse effects of having the size of the Normal.DOT template grow, say to 1MB? or maybe larger? I found this MSKB article but it does not say if the size increase is a problem nor does it give any solutions, and it seems specific enough for Word 2003 <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>.
Wassim<img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20> in the <img src=/S/bagged.gif border=0 alt=bagged width=22 height=22>

Re: Size of Normal.DOT (Word 97 and >)
That MSKB article is indeed specific to Word 2003. If you store a lot of AutoText items, styles, macros etc. in Normal.dot, it is to be expected that it grows in size. 1 MB is large, but should not really cause problems. You might check, however, if your Normal.dot contains AutoText, styles, macros etc. you never use any more.
