Word templates

(OP)
Does anyone know if it's possible to open an already-created document (based on the Normal template) "into" a new template (that is empty except for some graphic elements) so that the resulting new document has both the existing text and the new graphic elements? I have close to 1000 word documents that need - but don't have - these graphic elements in the headers and don't know how to best go about inserting the graphics. Any and all suggestions welcome!

RE: Word templates

Sure. open the template you have and want to make changes to. Then, make the changes and have it looking *exactly* the way you want it to look.

Finally, do "Save As" and change to template (.dot).

On a Macintosh, you can save it as a normal word document and use as a stationary pad.

RE: Word templates

Will this fix her 1000 Word documents? I fear they are pretty much 'cast in stone' with the original template settings they were created with. Another approach would be to record a macro and use it to update each of the files as they become needed. This, obviously, is not a good solution if all 1000 need to be updated at once.
I suspect that there is a way to apply a macro across a group of files, but I'm not familiar with it. Hope this helps.
