word 2007 template opening versus new document issue
Posted on 2016-10-17
I have some Word 2007 templates that cannot be double clicked OR right clicked to create NEW documents based on them.
So my staff OPEN them and thus the templates are changed and then they are CLOSED when they are finished.
This creates a problem in that when you want to use those templates you have to 'clear out' the data that someone has put in them, which defeats the object!
I know of a workaround. If you have Word OPENED and MINIMIZED you can then doubleclick or right click to create a NEW document based on that template.
But why should I have to do this and what is the solution please?
