    Styles won't copy from one template to another (Word 2003)

    Hi there

    I am creating several templates which I want to have the same styles as each other. I created a master and then copied the master to create the other templates. Some styles needed to be changed so I did this in the master template and then copied them over (using the Organiser) to the other templates. However the new formatting simply doesn't go across and the styles have basically taken on the normal style. Very frustrating. Anyone got the same problem or any clues as to what I can do without modifying the styles in each individual template to make them the same as the master?
    Many thanks.

    If you have styles based on other styles, you should copy all styles from the master template to another template at least three times in the Organizer to ensure that all dependencies between the styles are transferred.

    Hi Hans
    That is quite amazing! Thanks very much. Would it be better never to base styles on other styles, but rather on the normal style do you think?
    Cheers . . .

    It's OK to base styles on other styles, it can be very useful to have to edit only one style and have changes carry through to others depending on it. You just have to remember to copy the styles three times if you want to transfer them... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
