    Normal.dot Opens (Office XP)

    At my office, we have just made a server change and a login software change (from Novell) and now, when Word opens, it is also opening up my normal.dot (which is a specially-created one from our system, rather than Word's automatic normal.dot). Any ideas as to why this is happening? Thanks.

    Select Tools | Options..., and activate the File Locations tab.
    Note the Startup path. Word will open all documents and templates in this path.
    - Is it equal to either the User Templates path or the Workgroup Templates path?
    - Does the startup path contain a Normal.dot file?

    If this doesn't help, see Phil Rabichow's <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000),197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (97/2000)<!/post>.

    BTW did you have a specific reason to ask this in the VB/VBA forum?

    None of the conditions that you set out are present. So, I will look at Phil's approach. Thanks.
