I have upgraded an old windows 2000 PC to a newer PC with Windows XP in a small business office that I provide support for. The PC acts as a file server for 4 other PCs in the office running Office 2003 under Windows XP. There are a lot of custom templates used to generate most documents. Normal.dot is hardly used.
Since installing the new server, there is a noticible pause as each document is opened. watching closely in the lower left corner of the Word window, I see that Word is searching for the template at the old server location.
Is there any way to configure something that tells the opening documents to look for the template at the new server location?
When I transfer a file to my office computer with Office 2010(another physical location), I notice a similar phenomenon. The document, before opening, is looking for the original template that it was based upon.
Thank you for some help
