Cannot add quick parts to MS Word 2010 Header

1. I make new instance of word 2010, then do...
2. Ribbon>INSERT> Header   -  get warning: 'Word cannot open doc template' with ref to Building blocks.dotx
2b. Repeating #2 above does insert header!
3. Having go header, I want to insert the file name, so I click INSERT 'quick parts'
3b. Get same warning as #2, and repeat of process (as in #2b) does not lift this blockage.
4. Insertion of page number, world art, date and time, works ok.

Ought I regenerate Building blocks.dotx? However, I have not been able to find details for Word 2010 ( regenerate Building blocks.dotx); I aways end up with details for Word 2007.

My AIM is to add the file name (hopefully LESS its extension to my header, and to enter px/y
where x is the current page and y is the total number of pages.

Thanks
Kelvin

When you make a new instance, do you mean that you already have an instance running. This is possible, but not advisable because of conflicts with the Normal template. Perhaps you are getting a similar problem the BuildingBlocks template.

Apologies, I meant 'Open a new Word file from the start menu'.

To check out your question, I closed the word document that was currently open and then opened a new Word document that had not been previously created, named etc.

I tested out my story (above) using that new word document, and the same failure of open Quick Parts occurred.

Almost certainly the regeneration process for 2007 will also work in Word 2010.

It is very difficult to apply solutions from earlier versions of Word, because of system changes.
I have found a url that seems to solve my problem, by providing clear instructions:

http://www.sussex.ac.uk/its/help/faq?faqid=2469

Are there other practical experiences?

That seems to be a creditable possibility. Have you tried it? If not, it is a short journey from Surrey to Sussex.  I think the uni is in Brighton, so perhaps the article writer and I should discuss it between us
