    Word 2003 (compatability with Word 6.0/95)

    I have a user on Word 2003. When we checked her normal.dot and the compatibility is set for Word 2000. Yet when she creates a new document the compatabilty is set to custom. Any idea how this is changing? Even better, any idea how to get the compatability to stay as word 2000? The other weird thing is if she tries to use some of the table and border features it gives her an error that she can't use those functions because they are not compatible with Word6.0/95. We deleted her current normal but the new one word created is doing the same thing. Also, the cursor goes the top of the page even though page setup shows a 1 inch top margin? See Attached. Thanks for any help.

    About the top margin: move the mouse pointer to immediately below the top edge of the document area, untol the mouse pointer changes shape, then click.
    Or select Tools | Options, activate the View tab, and tick the check box "White space between pages", then click OK

    About the compatibility settings: they don't seem to stick in Word 2003. Whether this is a 'bug' or a 'feature', I can't tell you.
