    Saving a Doc also asks if I want to save template (2000/SR1)

    I have some templates that I use to derive a word doc from and when I save the new Doc I am also prompt and asked if I wish to save the document template and later it asks if I wish to save to the template that the document came from. I have attached screen shots of the two prompts.

    Does your code change the template(s)? That's the usual reason Word would suggest that they would need to be saved.

    Also, please look at this thread from last week: Templates, save changes (W2K, O2K pro-UK)

    Re: Saving a Doc also asks if I want to save template (2000/SR1)

    I use ActiveDocument rather than ThisDocument so that the template is not touched. I inherited these templates(34 of them) and I amtrying to figure out what is causing this. What type of code would I look for that would be changing the template?

    Tha one link helps!!!

    Thanks

    Well, adding AutoText could do it, but it's probably the things you least suspect, like applying direct formatting to something and having it update the template's styles. I wonder if there is any way to create an event loop in the template that will "ding" when a change is made to it? This wouldn't tell you what got changed, unfortunately, but maybe you can narrow it down somehow.
