I am running the Office97 version of Word on XP.
Each time I open the prog the blank page is in normal view with the ruler showing. My preferred view is pagelayout with no ruler.I change the setting which then hold until machine is rebooted, then it defaults to the ruler etc.The Normal.dot template doesn't seem to hold this info... what's going on please?

Have you actually opened the Normal.dot file, made the changes you want, saved the file and exited?

mgmcc - yes I have which is why I cannot understand the situation.
