    change file location (Office 2003)

    Hello,

    I have 6 different workers working with Office 2003 (Wd, Exl, PP) on the same computer and each has a unique folder on a server with Windows Server 2003. Each worker has his own user name and password to enter the computer. How can I convince Office to automatically change the path in "tools, options, file location" to the right folder, according to the worker working on the computer?

    Thanks

    I each user has his/her own login name, that should be automatic. The paths in the File Locations tab of Tools | Options... are stored in the CurrentUser part of the Windows Registry; each user has his/her own storage in the Registry.

    Thanks

    Do you mean that I must set the path manually for each worker / profile?

    By default, most paths in Tools | Options..., File Locations will point to the user's personal profile. For example, the Documents path will be

    Cocuments and Settings<username>My Documents

    and the User Templates path will be

    Cocuments and Settings<username>Application DataMicrosoftTemplates

    where <username> is the login name of the worker. So each user will have his/her own folder for documents, for templates etc. If you want the settings to be different from the default, you'll have to change them (once) for each user.
