Default Modify an existing template

I have a company wide custom Word template that has in it a option for
letterhead with the attorney's name. This template was created a few
years ago but not by me. I have to modify this letterhead template to
reflect several staff changes.

I for the life of me cannot seem to figure out to do basic editing of
this template to reflect the staff changes. Unfortunately I am not a
Word expert hence my post here. Seems to me I may be missing a
particular option or something.

If it was done a few years ago, it might well be a scan of an original
hard-copy letterhead. In which case it can't be edited. To check: open the
template itself (not a document based on it). Double-click the header. If
it's a graphic it will select as a block. Try ungrouping (on the Draw menu
on the Drawing toolbar) -- it might comprise graphic components and editable
text boxes.
