    Prompt for File Properties (XP Pro/Media Center Edition)

    Is there a way...to have the default file save prompt for the document properties? I know you can set this in Microsoft Office Programs, but I would like to set this for all documents, so you are prompted for the file properties. What I would really like is to have the file name created from the file properties entered...

    Thanks!

    You could do this for a Word document by modifying the Normal.dot template. From the VBE insert the following macros:
    <pre>Sub SetTitleAndFilename()
    Dialogs(wdDialogFileSummaryInfo).Show
    With Dialogs(wdDialogFileSaveAs)
    .Name = ActiveDocument.BuiltInDocumentProperties("Title")
    .Display
    End With
    End Sub

    Private Sub Document_New()
    SetTitleAndFilename
    End Sub
    </pre>


    This should prompt the user for Document Properties, then show the File Save As... dialog with the Title as the suggested file name.
