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.

Hi,

pls try

Click the  Microsoft Office button.
Place the cursor over "Prepare" to reveal the "Prepare the Document for Distribution" menu.  Click "Inspect Document"
Click "Inspect"
Click "Remove All" if it finds personal information in your file.  Now click “Close” then save your document.

Regards
