mail merge word 2003 templates

Hi Experts,

I am creating my first mail merge template in word 2003.

when you select a template while going through the motions of creating a mail merge you are greeted with this screen:

where are these templates saved on the local PC? only because if I set this up for 5-10 users then it would be easier to copy the templates every team should be using to the location which word looks at rather than recreating these templates on each PC.

any questions let me know,

I think it would be in Templates folder.

If you click start then goto Word 2003, then right click it select open file location. Do you see templates folder?

You should be able to browse for any document or template if you choose 'From existing document...' in the 'New Document' task pane that opens when you do File/New.

Note however that, once designed, the mail merge main document can be opened directly as a document because the mail merge execution process doesn't change it.

Try going to programs then right click. You should have option to open file location. There you should see the template folders. Not the shortcut.
