Building and Debuging Templates for MS-W

By F3rg13 ·
There is very little information in the MS documentation that comes with MS Office to describe how to build or customize templates. Does anyone know of a decent book(s), pamphlet, web page, or any other source of detailed instructions for building and debuging Word templates?

An example of a problem I have had is as follows:

I took the memo template that comes with Word and modified it to include drop-down fields for the "To:", "CC:" and "From:" fields. The template worked initially but then I tried to modify the free text filed for the body of the memo. After several failed attempts I gave up. Subsequent to those attempts, the drop-down boxes in those fields still "drop-down" after I have built the memo and protected the document.

I have been unble to correct this situation. I have been unable to find a decent source of information on Word templates. I bought Woody Leonards book "Word 97 Annoyances" and "Hacker's guide to MS Word" but even these tomes fall short when it comes to templat

Hi!

You should get Office 2000 Developer Edition.
With this edition you get a few CDs from Developer Network on thoose CDs you'll be able to find what you're looking for.

Here you mought find a few hints and tips too.

That's the resources I use myself if I can't find a decent book. You can also checkout MS Press for any books on the subject.

Since you rejected all those answers, why don't you just close your question?

Why would I withdraw the question if I have yet to receive a useful answer?
