See this previous G2G Thread that deals with a similar question.
If that doesn't help, please post back.

I use Office 2007 (different). In Excel I click the Office logo and am given save, open, close. etc choices and down at the very bottom of this menu is "Excel Options" (if I am in Word, of course, it reads "Word Options"). Once in options you see several categories, click save and it brings up the options for saving. One being the default location for documents created using Excel. You type in the path and file name. Mine now reads ..... C:\Shared Documents
A file I had ALREADY created on my computer with its properties set to "share this folder" thus it appears in "My Network Places" on the other computers on the network.
I create subdirectories to the shared documents file I created.
My subdirectories: quotes, correspondence, forms, etc
so when I go to save a document, clicking save I am offered the directory: "Shared Documents"
with the various "subs" for me to choose from instead of
My Documents, with the music, video, picture, etc subs.
Once again, I thank you for your interest.

What I'm not sure about is the way you want to accomplish it. Based on your original post, I think it would have been simpler to redirect "My Documents" to the "Shared Folder", whether this folder is on the workstation or the server. And you could have done it with a Group Policy on the server, if you have a server.
I'm not sure about that.
By the way, when you right-click My Documents, Properties, and type in a new location [C:\Shared Documents or F:\Shared Documents], you are prompted to move everything from My Documents to the new location. Choosing No leaves My Documents intact (with Music, Photos, etc), and simply creates, if necessary, the new folder. Thus the default Save location for all applications is now the Shared Documents folder.

This solution works apparently for any of the Office Suite programs, here is a link for Power Point 2003 for example: http://malektips.com..._2003_0016.html
Or do a web search by typing: change default save location
Thanks again, Gail, I'm done, it works, I'm happy. Proving once again that even a blind squirrel finds an acorn occasionally.
