Hi all, is it possible to use vba in word 97 to automatically load up and display the File -> Save As     browser window for the user to browse through and choose the directory where he wants to save the file, everytime a user opens a particular document.
Thanks for any help.

Add this Code into the ThisDocument module using the Visual Basic Editor (Alt+F11)
Private Sub Document_Open()
  Application.Dialogs(wdDialogFileSaveAs).Show
End Sub

If you want this in the template, then
Private Sub Document_New()
  Application.Dialogs(wdDialogFileSaveAs).Show
End Sub

Thanks angel for answering :)
But is there a way such that File
-> Save As window loads up and appears only when the user opens the parent document and not when the user opens the saved child documents?
The problem occurs because the file-saving code carries over to the saved documents as well.
Thanks for any help.

What do you call Parant Document? Does it not correspond to a Word Template.
If it does, then only copy the code for the event Document_New() to the template (file.dot).
You may change the filename extention from .doc to .dot to make a document a template
