Word macro enabled template

A user is asking for a change to the macro enabled template (dotm) file that she uses to
create documents.  I assumed there was a macro in the dotm file I needed to change but when I opened the dotm in word and went to view macros I don't see any.  Went into visual basic editor and didn't see any code either

How are the prompts generated when the dotm is double clicked on?

Not sure what I am missing

You can save a Word document as macro-enabled event though it has no macros. You can't save a document with macros as a standard (.docx) document.

The .dotm extension is usually (it can be changed) set up so that when it is double-clicked in Windows Explorer, a new document is created in Word from it.

If macros are recorded, they will be placed in the NewMacros of the Normal template where thy will be available for use by any document. Your user might have assumed that such macros will be stored in the document that is being worked on.
