    Panic! Attaching a template to a document (2003)

    I have a template that I need to attach to a lot of documents. To do this I do the following:

    1. Open a document
    2. Select Tools > Templates & Add Ins
    3. Attach the template

    However, when I then view available styles, many of them spurious bullet points added, so the content is all over the place.

    Does anyone know what might be causing this?

    Many thanks!

    csy,

    When you attach the template, are you putting a check next to 'Automatically update document styles', or leaving it unchecked? If you need to attach the template, but don't specifically need to update the document styles, then it's best to leave it unchecked.

    Do your documents/templates contain numbered and or bulleted paragraphs to begin with, and if so, are these linked to styles?

    Could you post a copy of the template here, so that others could take a look at the problem?
