    Macro run on open (Word2000/2002)

    I am creating document tempate for many users.
    Is there a way to create a macro that will run when the user opens a document from the centrally saved template so that styles are created automatically on each users machine?
    eg. the template is saved on a central server. The user double clicks on the template - a new document opens - macro runs adding styles to user computer so that macros using these styles will run.

    It is possible to run code whenever a new document is created based on a template, but I'm not sure you need it here. Styles are stored in templates and in documents. The concept "adding styles to user computer" has no meaning.

    When you create a new document based on a template, that document will automatically inherit all the style definitions from the template.
