    As I recall from Word 2000, make sure the macro protection is set to Medium (preferred) or Low. To do this, Click Tools > Security, or Tools > Macros > Security (I don't have Word right in front of me right now <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>), and set the 'macro virus protection' or similar option to Medium. You will then have to restart Word, but the document should open.

    Alternatively, you could ensure that the template is located in your Workgroup templates directory. Word would ignore the macro protection then. It disables macros (by default) when the template is not located in either the User Templates or Workgroup Templates directory.

    There should be a network directory to which everyone has READ access which contains all the MS Office templates that should be shared in the organisation. Each user should have their machine pointing at that directory for their Workgroup templates.

    This is done in Word by choosing Tools > Options and clicking on the File Locations tab. The Workgroup templates path can be modified by selecting that option and clicking the modify button. This will require each machine/user profile to be set this way. Once this is done these templates will be available for general use and the macro security problem should go away.
