      A template is a special kind of Word document that is saved just to be a pattern for other documents. Any time you open a blank document in Word, you are using one template or another. In general, it is the Normal.dot template, which is the global default in Word. Make changes to templates that you download from the Microsoft Web site or create new ones as described here, but leave the Normal.dot template as it is.

      So your answer is to open the template and save the document as a Word document. You may have some issues with formatting, but those are fixable.

      You may have inadvertently opened or created a template file. You cannot change the file type of a template. To save your work as a Microsoft Word document instead of a template, save the template, and then create a new document:
      On the File menu, click New, and then click the template you want to base the new document on.
      Under Create New, click Document, and then click OK.
      Copy all of your work from the template to the new document.
      Save the new document, making sure that you click Word Document in the Save as type box.
