I have seen documents with a "stamp" that says "priliminary". How do you do that?

From Word help:

On the Format menu, point to Background, and then click Printed Watermark.
Do one of the following:
To insert a picture as a watermark, click Picture Watermark, and then click Select Picture. Select the picture you want, and then click Insert.

To insert a text watermark, click Text Watermark, and then select or enter the text that you want.

Select any additional options that you want, and then click Apply.
For Help on an option, click the question mark , and then click the option.

To view a watermark as it will appear on the printed page, use print layout view.
Tip

If you want to use an object, such as an AutoShape, as a watermark, you can manually paste or insert it into the document header. You cannot use the Printed Watermark dialog box to control these settings.

Note   If you want to add a theme, which includes document backgrounds, design elements, and color schemes, use the Themes command on the Format menu.

This is for Word 2002.  If using a previous version, you can go in to Help and lookup "Watermark".

Thanks I tried it and it worked ... I put the word ASAP in but it started it about 1/3 page down and so the whole word doesn't show up. I tried putting the cursor near the bottom when I inserted it but that didn't help. Then I tried making a new document and it works properly. Any ideas?

Hmmm.  Not really, but I'll try to remember to look in to this when I get to work.
