Microsoft Word/author in Word 2007
hello,Mahesh,how've you been?
My new question: I want to establish a different author for each file. But when I click the Office button, then at the bottom right I click Word options to enter an author's name, I find that all documents, regardless of who created them, bear the same author!
Is there a way to establish an author's name reflecting the actual author, so that when John creates one document, it will bear his name; when Kelly creates a document, it will bear her name, and so on.
The author name is picked up by default from the applications "user" name field. However, instead of changing the author through Word - Advanced options, you can change it through the properties menu.
Simply click on the office button - Prepare - Properties. A horizontal ribbon will appear on the screen which will show you properties of the existing document. The fields are editable there. You can change the name of the author to the desired author name.
Hope this helps.
