    Normal template (Word 2000 SR-1)

    I have modified the normal.dot template, specific to my workplace.
    All users have the following setup in Word within the Options-> File Locations
    User Template H:Template
    Startup Cocuments and SettingsmlhApplication DataMicrosoftWordSTARTUP
    I've also found Normal.dot in Cocuments and SettingsmlhApplication DataMicrosoftTemplates
    Where do I need to place the new normal.dot so that it is used whenever the user creates a new document.
    In what order and where does Word look for the Normal.dot template.
    Additionally, we have turned on the Prompt for Document Properties when saving a document.
    How can I ensure that certain items (Author, Company, Manager) in the Properties box is always populated and retains the entries that the user enters.
    Any advice gratefully received..

    Normal.dot usually is in the user templates folder.

    Note: that startup path is profile-specific, so I would simply trust Word to set that one up.
