Word 2010 - Hide Styles included in a Quick Part/Cover Page

I have a cover page stored as a Quick Part. This has been formatted with various Styles that I would prefer the user not to see.  In several templates I have used Styles to create particular elements and then hidden them because the user will never need them.  

I often work with the Styles Pane displayed or have the old-format Styles drop down list on the QAT.  When I insert this cover using 'Insert, Cover Page', the Style names are shown in the panel or the drop down box.  However, if I insert the file (Insert, Object, Text From File) they do not.

I have tried putting the Styles in the template into which I am inserting the cover and hiding them but still the names show up.  They are not defined as Quick Styles.

Am I missing something?  Is there a way I can avoid the Style names showing when I use Insert Cover?

Thank you for your help.

I believe you have found a "challenge" with Building Blocks. I'll raise the issue with the MS Word team. I doubt if you will see a change in how styles are hidden until possibly the next version.

Meanwhile, I'd suggest creating your own event to add a cover page that includes code to hide your styles at the point the cover page is added.

Hi Dawn

Thank you very much for your reply.  Can you tell me how to hide the the Styles programatically?  I can only find 'unhideuntilused'.

An update on using FIle Insert:  this also displays 'hidden' Style names, albeit different ones to when the cover is inserted using building blocks.

Thanks for the solution - good to know I was not missing something obvious.  Have still not found how to programmatically hide the Styles though.
