Hi,

When I installed office, I gave it my full name and my initials during setup. Now, when I create new documents and send them out, people can use the Properties box of the file to see who the author was and who last saved it, etc.

How can I wipe out this information? I don't want it to know my identity anymore.

Thanks,
Richard

What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

I think it comes from Excel options and not the registration.

Review the Tools, Options, General Tab. Change or delete your username there.
