How to open Word templates from Access

I want Access to open a document as a blank using a template I define. Right now I have this code and it works and it opens the correct document, but if I work it as a *.dot ( Word template), then it opens the template for editing, not a blank document.

How can I open the template as a blank, like when you do Word manually?

>>>
    Dim word As word.Application
   
    Set word = CreateObject("Word.Application")
    word.Visible = True
    word.Documents.Open ("\\ctx\Joblog\Word Docs\STATECOMPLIANCE blank.doc")

Hello onepiolin,

you should use:
word.documents.add()
the first param then is: The name of the template to be used for the new document. If this argument is omitted, the Normal template is used
the second: True to open the document as a template. The default value is False

Regards,
