This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It is peculiar that your question is verbatim to this post on Microsoft Answers. To summarize the discussion over there, the AutoSummary feature was removed in Word 2010.

AutoSummary is the feature that lists the Title, Subject, Author, Keywords, and Comments. This feature was available from the Tools menu. In Word 2010, this feature is no longer used. If you insert an abstract into the document, that is not AutoSummary data and will remain. However, if the document was in a summary view when it is saved, it will not be after you open it.
