Template object (Word)

Represents a document template. The Template object is a member of the Templates collection. The Templates collection includes all the available Template objects.

Remarks

Use Templates (Index), where Index is the template name or the index number, to return a single Template object. The following example saves the Memo2.dot template if it is in the Templates collection.

For Each aTemp In Templates 
 If LCase(aTemp.Name) = "memo2.dot" Then aTemp.Save 
Next aTemp

The index number represents the position of the template in the Templates collection. The following example opens the first template in the Templates collection.

Templates(1).OpenAsDocument

The Add method is not available for the Templates collection. Instead, you can add a template to the Templates collection by doing any of the following:

  • Using the Open method with the Documents collection to open a document based on a template or a template

  • Using the Add method with the Documents collection to open a new document based on a template

  • Using the Add method with the Addins collection to load a global template

  • Using the AttachedTemplate property with the Document object to attach a template to a document

Use the NormalTemplate property to return a template object that refers to the Normal template. Use the AttachedTemplate property to return the template attached to the specified document.

Use the DefaultFilePath property to return or set the location of user or workgroup templates (that is, the folder where you want to store these templates). The following example displays the user template folder from the File Locations tab in the Options dialog box (Tools menu).

MsgBox Options.DefaultFilePath(wdUserTemplatesPath)
