AFAIK it is not possible.

Any time you attempt to open a .dot file it will open the associated program (Word).

Is there something special you are trying to do?  I'm curious as to why you posted this in the FP ta instead of the Microsoft Offica ta.

The reason I posted it on the FP site is that at work we design all our websites on FP and the question was raised from a colleague who thought it might be an FP question. But I suppose in reality it is an IE question.

The history behind it is we currently have over 300 templates used at work that are accessed via an icon within Word. One particularly keen individual was designing (or playing!) with his depts website and thought it would be a great idea if people could run the templates from the website instead of having to go to Word. But of course doing this means the AutoNew macros don't kick in nor does a copy of the template open , it opens the actual .dot file which brings its own problems.

That's the story...

Exactly....You might be able to do it through an ActiveX control....but that would only be recommended on an Intranet.
