    Workgroup Templates (Word 2002/SP3)

    In the past, when I created a new folder in the directory where our workgroup templates appear, that new folder would appear as a tab alphabetically in the New dialog box. Today when I did this, that new folder did not appear in the correct order eventhough the main directory shows it should be. We did upgrade to SP3 a few weeks back. I can't find anything on Microsoft's site about this. Do you know if going to SP3 is causing this issue for me?

    I don't think Office XP SP3 has anything to do with this. Starting with Word 2000, the Templates dialog shows a lot of built-in tabs first, the tabs corresponding to your own subfolders start after the last built-in tab.

    Re: Workgroup Templates (Word 2002/SP3)

    Our law firm has used Word since the DOS 2.0 version so I am quite aware of how the built-in tabs work. I have never had a problem with creating tabs and having they appear in alpha order for our workgroup templates that is why I am asking if anyone can shed some light on to why this is all of a sudden appearing this way.

    If it doesn't contain confidential info, could you post a screenshot of the tabs in your Templates dialog?

    I'm not seeing any problem in Word 2003, but I suppose that doesn't really help you.... Mine are in this sequence:

    Front row:
    General {Templates folder}
    Legal Pleadings {auto-generated}
    Letters & ... {auto-generated}
    Mail Merge {auto-generated}
    Memos {auto-generated}
    Other Documents {auto-generated}
    Publications {auto-generated}
    Reports {auto-generated}

    Back row:
    Migrated {local folder}
    Shortcut to... {TBD}
    [5 workgroup folders in alpha order]
    More... {the full list of workgroup folders}
