Template Customized Save Locations


Vinny B


I have several templates i have created in word. I need each template
to save in a different location. For example:

1) Template 1 will auto default to save in my documents.
2) Template 2 will auto default to save in my photos.

Is there a way to have a auto default option for indviduale ms word templates?

Thank you very much Vinny

Word will start with the documents folder set in Word options file
locations, until you open a document from a different folder which will then
become the active folder until you either change the folder or re-start
Word. However you can intercept the File Save command in the template with a
macro stored in the template e.g.

Sub FileSave()
On Error Resume Next
ChangeFileOpenDirectory "D:\My Documents\My Pictures"
ActiveWindow.Caption = ActiveDocument.FullName
End Sub

Change the path to that which you require the document to make the initial
save. Thereafter re-saving the document will save it to the folder it was
opened from.

DO NOT save this macro in the normal template.
