crazy changes in Word 2000

I know I'm using a really old version, but it's the one my employers 
installed on my computer.  Everything was working ifne, but some things are 
going crazy.

I could finish typing a paragraph, hit enter to start the next one, and the 
font and size reverts back to the default (which I'm unable to change 
permanently due to users' security being limited).

Also, I opened up a document I'd been working on, and anything that was on 
the top line of the page has moved in an inch.  The tabs are all exactly the 
same as they were before, and haven't been touched.  It doesn't matter if 
it's a heading, or just part way through a sentence - every page has been 
affected and I can't get it back to the way it was.

Please help!

For the first problem, check Tools | Options | General and make sure that 
neither of the WordPerfect options is checked. Alternatively, if you're 
typing a heading using one of the built-in heading styles (on purpose or 
inadvertently because Word has AutoFormatted your paragraph as a heading), 
then the "Style for following paragraph" is Normal.

For the second, see

I don't know precisely what causes the formatting to change between
paragraphs, but it could be a damaged Normal.dot template or a
misbehaving add-in. If you're denied access to change defaults, it's
doubtful you'll have the ability to fix this either, but see
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/AppErrors/ProblemsStartingWord.htm and
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/921541 for troubleshooting procedures.
The indented top line is most likely the leftover frame from a deleted
page number. See
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Formatting/UnaccountablyIndented.htm for the
solution to that.

List box questions
Hello, I have a table that contains document metadata for a set of reference documents. I have a form that displays the metadata in separate fields. On the form I also have a list box that only lists the document titles. When the user clicks on a title, the detailed document metadata gets displayed on the form. That all works wonderfully. My problems: 1. When the form first opens, the document details that are displayed are NOT from the first document (sorted by title, even though I have set it to be). 2. The list box is nicely ordered by title, as desired, but there is not select...
