    Styles updated from template when told not to (Word 2002)

    I have a document attached to a template that has been deleted.
    When I open the document and attach it to another template, and tell it NOT to update styles, it updates my styles anyway.
    Any ideas please.

    In playing with this a little bit, it seems that if I try to change the attached template and turn off the "Automatically update document styles" setting at the same time, the styles get updated regardless; but if I first uncheck the update styles checkbox, click OK to close the dialog, go right back into the Templates and Add-ins dialog, and then change the template, the styles are not updated. Does this work for you?

    Thanks, Cris, for taking the trouble to investigate.
    My original template has been deleted, so Word won't let me just change the "update styles from template" flag but insists on me attaching a new template at the same time.

    Regards,
