I would like to know how to have the "default" Microsoft Word 2007 page open to/have a default footer that displays the path and filename once saved.  I don't want users to have to go to the insert, footer, filename and path each time for each document.  Thanks!

You need to change the "Normal" template.  You can create other templates as well, if you do not want to mess with the normal one, but the normal one is what opens each time.

Thanks, that just saves the current location of the normal.dotm location and inserts that into each document.

I'm sorry, maybe I don't understand your question.  When the user opens Microsoft Word 2007 instead of a completely blank document, you want a footer to be there already.  

The normal template is what opens and shows the blank page.  by modifying the normal template, whatever changes you make will open up each time the user opens word.  You can change fonts, color, etc.  

Are you looking for something different?

Sorry for the confusion.  I would like to "preformat" the document per se so when a user opens word 2007 and a new blank form opens they type the new content and do a file, save as, or a file save.  When they go to print that document or open it, it will have the new file location in the footer area.  each document maybe saved to a different location.  Does that make more sense?

Thanks.  

If you add the path as a field in your normal template it should change when the document is moved.  F9 updates the path or the print command also works.  So you should be fine as long as you add it as a field, it will find the path.
