Using Style Sheets with MS Word
Posted on 2012-12-27
Seasons greetings :-D
I'm trying to make a template (.dotm) and anticipate a need for future customization and tweaking... I figured with Word 2010 that I should be looking at using style sheets and XML... I have close to zero experience with either... a bit of searching on google and EE has not helped much.
I'd like my template to reference an external style sheet (or similar) so that text attributes and page layouts can be specified...
For example I have some data laid out in tables and might wish to change fill colors of the tables, table width, row breaking properties etc.
Is this possible with Word 2010?
Would love some pointers to get me started... failing this I guess I'll be creating an .ini file that contains my specifications and using VBA to apply all my formatting (so would appreciate thoughts on the best way forward too....)
