    Building Blocks 2007

    We have a couple dozen document templates (dotm) created in Word 2007 that have problematic VBA code. Each template has building blocks saved to the document template. What would be the best way to put these building blocks into a temporary template and then bring them back into newly created (also 2007) templates? I've tried created a template called Temp.dotx, which I have stored in the roaming BB folder and the Office 12 folder (appropriate BB subfolder in each case), and those templates are not in the Save In drop down when I edit the BB properties of the old ("bad") template.

    To get a template in the SaveIn part of the Create/Save Building Blocks dialog the template must either be loaded as an Add-In, loaded as a building blocks template, or the active document's attached template.
    Automated Boilerplate in Word - especially Where Can Building Blocks be Stored?

    Take a look at Greg Maxey's Building Blocks tools.
