    determin full path? (Word 2003)

    I have office 2003 on Windows XP. Can I determine the full path of a file in a dialog box. See the attached screen capture. Can I, for example, determine what the full path is for the "BOA 7-12-04FOR..." template is.

    And if I have a new word document open can I tell the full path of the Template it is based on.

    Right-click a file and select Properties from the popup menu (this won't work for some built-in items such as Web Page and E-mail Message).

    Thank you, that confirmed my suspicions. I had two versions of the same template in two different locations.
    That was a big help.

    similar to what hans has said, when I want to get a file reference for a piece of code I right hand mouse click the file/folder, create a shortcut. Right click on the new short cut and select properties and then get the full path reference from the resulting pop up. <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> I am too lazy to type

    Along the same lines, is it possible to determine what Template, other than the "Normal.dot" was used to create a doc.

    Select Tools | Templates and Add-Ins...
    The Document Template box shows the name (and, if different from Normal) path of the template.

    If Word cannot find the original template, it may display Normal in the Templates dialog. The information might be hidden in the metadata, either under File>Properties somewhere or by opening the document using the Recover Text From Any File (*.*) filter. If you really need it.
