    Automatically-update-style turns on (Word97/NT)

    Hi

    I keep on running across this problem.

    I turn off "Automatically update" for a specific style, and save the change to the template.

    Dale,

    I know you've got a code workaround (in another thread), but am wondering in any case what you mean when you say "save the change to the template": are you doing this from the document, or are you actually opening the template, going to the styles dialog, making the change and saving the template itself? - I wouldn't count on the former method being reliable; it you want a change to a template to stick, make the change in the template itself.

    Thanks, Gary

    I take the point about saving to the template.

    Hi again,

    First off, sorry - in my last post I referred to another post of yours - only it wasn't another post of yours - it was a post by another Dale! <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    Anyway, "automatically update styles" was going to be my last best guess, so if that is turned off, it's hard to figure why the setting is getting reset in your document - there isn't any kind of Document_Open or Document_New code running in the attached template (or anywhere else)?

    Hi Gary

    No, there's nothing else going on in any auto macros or events (in any of the attached templates).

    I've had a thought, though.
