Word templates with links to a main Word template.
Posted on 2014-12-07
I would like to create a system with Word templates.
It should consist of a main template, containing logo, address, etc.
Then I want to create a number of sub templates. These sub templates should have links to the main template, so the logo and address information can be changed in the main template, and all sub templates should be updated via the links.
The users should only use the sub templates. The sub templates have different individual contents for different purpose.
When the user use a sub template he/she gets a copy and then I want this copy to have no references to any template. It should be possible to send this new Word file to another person, without any problems with references or macro warnings.
I have tried, but not succeeded. If I understand it right, it is not possible to reference a template, that is referenced to another template. If I do, I get all these warnings and problems, I do not want.
So my question is: Does anyone have any idea how to create something like the system I am looking for?
I am using Office 2010.
