Office 2007 and templates


H

Hello,

Sorry for the 2nd post on this but I waited a couple of days for an answer.
I have Office 2007 SP2 running on all my clients. We have 97-2003 templates
that we have been using for a couple of years prior to the upgrade in Office.

I have noticed that some of these templates are extremely slow typing when
being used on Word 2007. Also the CPU spikes when you open them and try to
type.

I have tried removing all the add-ins on Word and also deleting the
Normal.dot and this has not fixed the issue. I also tried renaming the
templates to a DOTM or DOTX and this didn't fix the issue either.

Will I have to recreate all these templates in Word 2007?

Please let me know

There has been no answer because this sort of problem is very difficult to
diagnose from a distance and I guess no-one wanted to stick their neck out
and offer a solution that might not work.
..
Renaming a template from dot to dotx or dotm will not make the old template
into a 2007 template. Word can recognize its own documents from the
underlying document structure. To create a 2007 template you should open the
template in Word 2007 then save it as a dotx or dotm template from Word.
(dotm if the template contains macros). That might be a useful first step.
How well it will work will rather depend on what the template(s) contain.
