Default Auto-File Naming/ Default Directory Saves

I don't know if this is possible but wonding if anyone might know of a way to do the following.

-Automatically name a word document with a piece of information within a word doc for all users.


-Save the file to a specific or defaut directory every time for all users.

I set up a word doc with locked fields of information that have to be filled in individually by 20-30 users. I am trying to set up a dummy proof way, so to speak, to name the file using a document control number, a number in the document. Then have that document saved every time to a specific or default directory for every user.

Is there a way that can be accomplished using word?

I appreciate any insight.

-Stu

You can use simple VBA programming to write your own save routine

Yeah guess I have to create a script since there doesn't seem to be anything already built into Word.

Thanks
