Thanks for your help. I want to delete my name in the Authors area of MS Office Word 7.0. When I click on "Save As" just below the file information it shows "Authors" followed by my name. In short, I want to delete any reference to me, personally, in my Word 7.0 documents. I've tried a number of fixes for this but so far cannot eliminate my name in this Authors area.
