Hi there,

I just created a Word template called myfile.dot. If I click on it, a new

file called "document1.doc" is open automatically. This is perfect fine.

However, I would like to know if it's possible to change this pre-defined

name from "document1.doc" to "Myfile.doc" when an user clicks on myfile.dot.

Appreciate any help !

    • Open the template, go to the File > Properties dialog and enter

      "Myfile" (without quotes) in the Title field. Save the template.

      When a document is created from this template, the first time it's

      saved it will suggest "Myfile.doc" as the filename unless there's

      already a file with that name in the same folder -- in that case it

      will add a number to the name, like Myfile1.doc. Of course, you can

      modify the suggested name before clicking OK.

      For a macro version of this, see
