In the microsoft.public.word.docmanagement newsgroup, someone asked:
In previous versions of Word, you could turn on an option to display the properties dialog box every time a new document was saved. Pretty easy.
In Word 2003’s Tools->Options->Save tab, you could tell Word to prompt for document properties
Who can tell me how to do this in Word 2007. Can’t find the option anywhere.
In the Developer tab (if it’s not showing, turn it on in Word Options->Popular), click Document Panel. At the bottom of the Document Information Panel dialog box, tick the Always show document information panel on document open and initial save option.
