It's probably easier if I explain why I want this and why I'm not just simply double clicking on the .dot file and then copying and pasting.

We have a system that will generate a blank document however this document is already 'linked' to save into exactly the right place within our document management system.

What I'd like is as follows. With the blank document open the typist will run a macro that will allow them to browse to our styles/templates directory where they will pick the correct word template and then the full contents of this will be inserted into the blank document. It needs to be exactly the same, so margins, styles etc etc Styles should be fine as it will be the same for both the blank document and the document produced from the template.

So in basic terms we've replaced the blank document with the document produced from the word template.

I hope this makes sense but if not then just let me know and I'll try to clarify.
