    Setting workgroup templates path by policy (Word 2000)

    I'm looking for a way to set Word's workgroup templates path using group or system policies from a Windows 2000 server. It looks like this was added in the .ADM files for Office XP, but I don't see any way to do it using the policies for Office 2000. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    I don't know if this will help, but the Registry Key that holds the path to the Workgroup Templates is:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice9.0CommonG eneralSharedTemplates

    It's a REG_EXPAND_SZ type. Some sort of String value.

    I just found another regisrty key that holds the same value, but it is under

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftOffice9. 0CommonGeneralSharedTemplates

    This one is a REG_SZ type, which is a string value.
