    Prompting to save templates (2003 SP1)

    Hi all

    I recently reinstalled my whole system, including my brand new Acrobat 7. I quickly found that it had a conflict with WOPR 2003 (the Acrobat toolbar buttons basically didn't work unless I was using them in the very first document opened in a new Word session). Since I use WOPR constantly and the key Acrobat function (creating a PDF) can be performed easily by other means, I moved the Acrobat stuff out of Word's startup folder.

    Since then (as far as I can tell), Word has developed a bad habit of asking me if I want to save the related template every time I save a document. There's nothing life threatening about this, but it is getting a bit tiresome.

    I have tried clearing the "Prompt to save Normal template" but it doesn't solve the problem - Normal.dot gets saved whether I want it to or not (usually not), and any other active templates still create a "Do you want to save?" prompt.

    Any suggestions would, as always, be very greatly appreciated.

    Best regards

    Neil

    I think adding this Sub to the ThisDocument module in the attached template should do the trick. No time to test it though.

    Private Sub Document_Close
    ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.Saved = True
    End Sub

    Thanks for that - didn't seem to do it I'm afraid (unless I did something wrong, but your instructions were pretty straightforward).

    thanks anyway

    As I'm not familiar with wopr and acrobat 7, no more ideas for a solution here. <img src=/S/sorry.gif border=0 alt=sorry width=15 height=15>
