    Picture watermark crashes Word (2003)

    I'm trying to add a picture watermark to a document, but every time I attempt it, Word crashes. I've tried different pictures and different documents. All's well till I select the picture and click OK. I see the little box at the bottom of the screen telling me "Word is updating the fields in this document." The progress meter shows 100%, but Word just sits there...endlessly. Any suggestions?

    Of course! <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15> I've used Phil's advice on one other occasion...many months ago. Thanks for the reminder. The problem has gone away. Seems I had a corrupt Normal.dot.
