    Changing default open/save location

    Does anyone know a script or a way that I can change around 400 users default save location at once on Server 2008R2 and MS Office 2003?

    I have tried group policy but it doesnt always seem to work on the test users I have done. Any scripts which I can send out for users to run once or something would be fantastic.

    It would ideally be P:\%username%

    However I cannot for the life of me get it to work.

    This is what I have so far

    Code:
    On Error Resume Next
    Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    objWord.Options.DefaultFilePath(8) = "P:\%username%"
    objWord.Quit
