Word Templates in Website

Hi there,

I want word templates in my website to act as templates. Currently hyperlinked templates within my intanet are opening in word as read only templates. I want them to launch a new document based on the template as you would within windows explorer. Is there a way I can achieve this other than having my templates outside of my website?

You might check the permissions of the folder.  Usually a webiste does not have write permissions.  You might check with the IT to see if they can give write permissions to the folder the DOT file is in.

Corey,

Changed permissions both in windows explorer and IIS manger. Templates still open as templates and are read only. In fact every document in my intranet opens as read only.

Do they open as read only when you open then via Word? After reading some more of the other KB articles it might be a bit more difficult than one would hope.  If you right click on them, are they read-only?

Opening them from Word they open as templates but are not read only (as you'd expect). Checking the properties of the template in explorer reveals that they are not flagged as read only.

Points increased as this looks like it might be tricky, or even impossible.

That's right. Hyperlinking to a template is not like the *default* double-click action, which DOES create a new file from a DOT.
See if this'll work for ya:
