    WorkGroup Templates (Word 2000 v. 9.0.2)

    When I enter a pathname into the Workgroup Templates portion of the File Location settings (Tools/Options), the Tab and files don't appear in the File/New list. I have tried this for network and local directories and nothing seems to work. I have both templates and regular docs in my directory, but neither type appears. I have used this in the past with other networks/companies and it has always worked just fine.

    Re: WorkGroup Templates (Word 2000 v. 9.0.2)

    Hi Jan:
    I'm not sure what the problem is. I found this on the Microsoft KB:
    When you try to create a new document, you may be unable to view all templates from the New dialog box (on the File menu) if the following conditions are true:
    The templates exist in subdirectories under the main template directory.
    The Default Workgroup Template directory resides on a Novell server.
    Your computer is running the Microsoft NDS (NetWare Directory Services) client.

    This can ocurr if the latest service pack wasn't installed. See;en-us;262633
    Hope this helps.
