Saving Word Doc Updates other Word docs with the Changes

Never seen this before.  I'm creating several single sheet cover pages each with a different content and different "Save As" Title.  After about 20 pages later, when I alter a cover page and save it, it alters other documents with the new change I've made.  And now, if I go back to any one of those documents (each titled differently) and make a single change and save it(doesn't matter if it's "save" or "save as") it affects all other docs. Please help. It's quite frustrating.  Using Office Prof 2000.
Seems simple, but it's urgent--report due in morning.
 Thank you!

Just a guess, but worth a go!
Try clicking:  Tools | Options | General tab
take the tick out of the box for "update automatic links at open"

Also, you might want to try clicking: Edit | Links - and mess around in there.  You can break links from here, or change them or whatever you like.  I imagine you'd want to 'break links'

fingers crossed it's that simple!

I tried "update automatic links at open" and didn't work, unfortunately.  And the Edit Links was grayed out.

Thanks for effort!

Erp...  this sounds like you're editing a template (.dot file) instead of an actual document.  Template changes, especially those using normal.dot will be propagated to all other documents that use that template, once you open them.  
Maybe rename your normal.dot file and retry ?

I did various things to troubleshoot this problem.  It was based on a template that the original user created.  So I renamed all her templates, including normal.dot.
