Two people use my computer, Nathan and Michael.  Both are Administrators.  When Nathan is logged on his Word 2003 documents are saved in:

C:\...Nathan\Documents.  When Michael is logged on his Word 2003 documents are also saved in:  C:\Nathan\Documents.  Obviously, the way it should work is Nathan's Word documents should be saved under his log-in and Michael's documents should be saved under Michael's log-in.  I can't make that happen.  Here's what I've tried so far: 

 

I go to Control Panel, Tools, Options, File Locations.  When I click Modify I can indicate a different folder for saving Word documents, but I can't change the location "Nathan."  Also, any change I make just adds the new extension to the existing.  Example:

 

C..\Nathan\Documents    Modified to:  C..\Nathan\Documents\Documents, etc.  Whatever I choose is added onto the existing location

C..\Nathan\Documents. 

 

I hope I've explained this clearly.  Any Word 2003 experts out there who can help on this one?  It's really got me puzzled.  Thanks in advance.

Hello,

 

the first question that ' you cannot change the location " Nathan"' , do you log out when you change the location under Michael adminstrator.

 

As for another question, did you try with another file name. I mean you can try with different file name, like C..\Nathan\Documents\Tutorial

 

Hope my answer can help you a bit. Thanks!

I use Office 2003 but I'm the only user (Admin). If you open Word and click on Tools\Options and File Locations you can set which folder you want to use to save your files. I never use Users\Documents folder which it defaults to, I have my own folder.

 

If you only have Word ok if you have other offices apps then each one has its own file location which you can set in Options.

 

Now I don't know if these settings change for different users, but you can try it.

I believe these settings are on an individual user basis, but I have to admit that I have never tried it myself as I am the only one who uses my computers.
