    global template add-in load when word opens (w97sr2)

    Hiya
    Word 97 -
    In Tools >templates & add-ins I've loaded a global template.
    Each time I open Word - I would like the global template & its toolbars to be displayed.
    Currently the template is in the list but not enabled or check.
    Each time user opens word has to go to template add-ins & enable the template to display toolbars.

    How do you get the global template to display when opening word?
    TIA Diana

    Hi Diana,

    Just put the global template in the user's Startup directory. That way it will load every time Word is launched.

    Global templates that are not in the Startup directory, and which have been added to the list under Templates & Add-Ins, will stay in the list, but they will not automatically be checked (loaded) when you launch Word.

    Put it in Word's startup folder. You can find or set this under Tools => Options => File Locations (tab).

    See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/templates.htm> Template Basics</A> for more on global templates and template locations.
