    Styles in Calendar (Word 2000)

    I was dabbling with the Calendar Wizard and made some minor changes to the styles. Is there a way to have these changes be saved so that the next time I use the wizard they will be active?

    I looked in the Organizer, but since the styles are in the document, I could not see the way. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    That's exactly what the organizer is for <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>.
    In the organizer there are two panes - one that contains the styles in your document, and one that contains those in your template (normal.dot)

    If you want to make a style "permanent" then
    1. Click on the desired style in the Left hand pane (document)
    2. Click the > button in the centre to copy to the template

    From then on, it is also in the template Normal.dot and available for use.

    Re: Modify Styles in Calendar Wizard (Word 2000)

    A wizard is nothing more than a template with Auto macros & one or more userforms. Try this:
    1. Search for Calendar wizard in Windows Explorer (probably in C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeTemplates1033).
    2. Make a copy of it, so if anything goes wrong you can always restore it.
    3. Change the extension on the original from Calendar.wiz to Calendar.dot.
    4. Right click Calendar.dot & choose open. (Instead of 3 & 4, you could simply navigate to Calendar.wiz using Word's File/Open. You would need to change the Files of type to All Files (*.*) ).
    5. Modify the styles as you desire. I would NOT change the names of the styles, (as it is possible that the macros use the style names).
    6. Save & close the wizard/template.
    7. If you used step 3 & 4, change the extension back to .wiz.

    The wizard will should now use your modified styles.

    <big>NOTE (edited):</big>
    The above steps might not work in some wizards. There are wizards (e.g. the Agenda Wizard) that define styles in AutoText entries & insert styles by inserting AutoText. That means that if you look in the list of All Styles (Format/Styles...), you won't find these styles listed. In order to modify styles in those templates, you must insert the AutoText entry, modify the style(s), & then either delete the autotext entry or resave the AutoText entry with the modfied style(s). You might have to do this for a number of AutoText entries. After modifying the entries, make sure you remove the AutoText (i.e. the boilerplate text & graphics) from the open template itself). Always make a backup of the wizard before making these modifications or you might find yourself without a workable wizard. In the latter case, you would have to reinstall or extract it from the Office CD.
