Default Views in Word 2003

Is it possible to set up Word 2003 to always op;en in Print Layout view,
regardless of how the view was set when it was sent to me, or anyone else.

You should be able to accomplish that using an AutoOpen macro.

Open a document you know won't be in Print Layout view. Turn the macro
recorder on, and name the macro AutoOpen. Change the view to Print Layout.
Turn off the macro recorder.

Thereafter, when you open a new document based on Normal.dot, the AutoOpen
macro should set the view to Print Layout. If you use multiple templates,
you would need to copy the AutoOpen macro from Normal.dot to the other
templates as well.

It may also help if you go to Tools, Options, General and disable the
Reading View option.
