I have a .dot that creates assembles a document and saves it for the user. It runs fine as long as the template is somewhere underneath crogram filesmicrosoft officetemplates. If I put it anywhere else then it still runs fine, but the document that it assembles causes Word to shut down any time it is opened. Ouch! I have spent the afternoon working with the Tools, Options, File Locations, User Templates and Workgroup Templates, but nothing that I change here seems to help. Anybody out there have advice?
