" Dear Dennis,

I just installed MS Office and Windows XP Pro on my machine. When I first launched MS Word, I was asked for a user name. At this point, I didn't want to use my own name and instead used the user ID 'XYZ'. I share my documents with others and later found that the documents had the user ID 'XYZ' embedded into the file. I now would now like to change my user ID to my name so that the correct information is reflected. Can you tell me how I can do this? "

My response:

Load MS Word, then go to Tools -> Options, and look for a tab that says "User Information". Here you can change your user ID and information. When you save the document, the user ID information will also be updated.
