    And while were at it...

    ...does anyone know where Word stores the Return Address information?

    Re: And while were at it...

    I just ran across a document that I forgot I had on my harddrive that was titled "Where Word's Settings are Stored (Word 97)."

    Unfortunately, it doesn't say anything about the return address. It was based on Knowledgebase: Q172674

    I searched my registry and found my city listed at the following Microsoft-specific key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftUser information

    Don't know if this is where Word finds it, but it may well be.

    I suspect it may be inside a file called word.pip (Office 2000) since Windows recognizes that and similarly named files as Microsoft Office settings files.

    Ah, the Personal information profiles file. Yes, I know it well -- NOT! Another obscure Office settings file... I looked inside and found it all hashed up. Oh well.

    I have a mild suspicion that there is a hidden autotext entry that contains the return address. Remember AddressLayout and NameLayout? These two are also hidden autotext that contain defaults nobody likes. When you change them to something useful, they are no longer hidden. Any Woody's folks out there have a clue on this?
