    Close without saving normal.dot ? (Word 2002 VBA)

    Is there an easy way to exit Word without it trying to save changes to normal.dot?
    Thanks,
    Doug

    Include a macro that fools Word into thinking that Normal.dot has been saved.

    But that is a bad practice.

    If Normal.dot is being changed, one needs to find out why it is being changed.

    I set Normal.dot to read-only, except when I am testing macros that I expect to change Normal.dot.

    hi Doug,

    word 2002 creates a normal.dot if there doens't exist one yet each time it is opened. if you save normal.dot the first time you exit word, it probably won't happen again.
    or set its saved property to true.
    if you have other templates or addins that modify the interface programmatically , you should use the customizationcontext property to force word to save changes to that template and then set the save property of that template to true.

    greetings,
