I am looking for a solution to remove identifying information (the author, etc. info that shows up under File>Properties>Summary) from MS Word 2003 files AUTOMATICALLY. That is, I don't want to have to do this with every new file I start (I know how to do that), I want this information to be gone every time I open a new Word doc.
In the past, I used to be able to do this by tweaking the Normal.dot template, but I'm unable to erase information from that (unless perhaps I'm trying to tweak the wrong Normal.dot file, but I can't find another one on my system).
Any thoughts on how to do this? Again, to reiterate, I know how to do this for each individual document. What I want is for each new Word doc I open to be free of all of the above information.
