The Insert AutoText options (from Attention Line thru
Subject Line)have all lost their default options. How can
I restore them?

The defaults are stored in normal.dot. Rename normal.dot to oldnormal.dot
and let Word build a new one. You can then copy personalisations from old to
new using the organizer.

Thanks Graham. Your site is very cool, but didn't help
with the particila problem I'm having. The other site you
recommended, www.mvps.org/word, wouldn't display.

The wierd thing about the problem I'm having is that the
Insert AutoText Header/Footer selections came up fine for
about 5 times and then all of a sudden all I can get in
all the AutoText selections is the option to Create a
PDF.

I have updated the link in my sig. Sorry about that :(
It sounds like your PDF application is corrupting normal.dot - replace
normal.dot again and remove or update the PDF add-in.
