    change entire doc format everytime I make changes (2003)

    This may be a really dumb question, but....
    I just started at a new job and am now using 2003. Previous company on 97. I am trying to get some tables set up, and everytime I make a change, the formatting of the entire document changes. Is there some setting in 2003 that I don't know about that I can turn off. It's driving me crazy!

    Activate the Styles and Formatting task pane.
    Right-click the Normal style.
    Select Modify... from the popup menu.
    Clear the 'Automatically update' check box.
    If you want to set this as standard (in Normal.dot), tick the check box 'Add to template'.
    Click OK.
    You may have to repeat this for other styles. This will prevent ad-hoc formatting from being included in the style definition.
