    Quick Parts-Building Blocks network wide? (2007)

    I'm trying to set up a template for a document which will be used across our company. I also want to set up the 'Quick Parts' so various paragraphs can be dropped in as needed. How do I get the Building Blocks/Quick Parts to go across our network so everyone can see them?

    There are things I love in 2007 and things I miss. Then there are things like this that totally frustrate me!

    Thanks for your help

    I apologize for the lack of replies. I fear that many Loungers don't use Word 2007 yet...

    The only Quick Parts I know about are AutoText entries, which carry over from earlier versions of Word. In that case, you saved them in a template, which could be duplicated to numerous users as a global template (loaded at startup or otherwise). The other Quick Parts might be better for sharing from a single location, but I haven't had a chance to play with them yet.

    I've gone through all of the books that I have and don't see any mention of being able to do what you want with Quick Parts, but your question intrigues me so I will read a little deeper.
    Thanks John

    Quick Parts can be stored in specific templates, so could be saved in a template that is stored in a common location for all users using the Office Button - Word Options - Advanced - File Locations - Workgroup templates.
