How to change Author name in Word 2003

Posted on 2004-11-04
Last Modified: 2012-06-21

When I first installed MS Office 2003, I entered the wrong name for the author of Word files. I need to change it definatly. Right now, I go into the properties of the document, I go to summary and I change the author name. But I need to do that everytime I make an important document. Is there a way to change the author name once and for all without re-installing Office 2003? I've checked in the registry, but with no luck. Any help appreciated!

Thank You :-)
