global template, NORMAL.DOT, already open


R

Roger Marrs

Every time I launch Word, a dialog box pops up that states: "The global
template, NORMAL.DOT, is already open as an add-in program." I click OK to
close the dialog box and Word functions normally after that. Why is this
dialog box opening and how can I make it stop?

Do you perhaps have a copy of Normal.dot in Word's Startup folder?

Yes, Normal.dot is in my startup folder.
And now I see why, I had change the location for my user templates to the
Startup folder. Thank you.

Startup is not a good location for *any* user templates, as this will just
confuse Word (not to mention making it take forever to load).
