Word 2003: organizer button is greyed-out

tho i've used word 2003 for years, i'm trying for the first time to apply a template to an existing document. i can attach the template, but it will not change existing styles (such as headers). so i guess i need to copy the styles from the template in. but when i go to Tools -> Templates and Add-ins -> Templates tab, the Organizer button is greyed out.

ideas?

Do you have the template listed in the Document Template text box? IF so, then you might try saving your document and then come back to the dialog box to see whether the template "stuck" and the Organizer button is enabled.

Well, this is puzzling. Today when  I went to open the docs, the organize button was available. So far as I know, nothing changed overnite. Any ideas what might have happened? I had tried opening & closing them several times previously.

Good Deal!  My guess is that something was "stuck" that rebooting took care of. The security updates that were just released required a reboot.
