make a new personal template from an exisitng document with out losing or changing the exisiting document? Link below says has info on how to.

    Question

  • The link below states for info on how to create a template from a existing document / file  ALONG WITH how to create a NEW template from scratch.

    NO WHERE does it tell how to create a template from a existing word document WITHOUT messing up the existing word document.

    EVEN IF IT SAYS IT HAS THAT INFO.

    I CHECKED the "help" link in a word document,    AND Bing search on this.    I KEPT getting same link below that does NOT have info on this.

    I have several word documents with custom styles and UserForms and macros and tables I want to include in New Word Macro Enabled Personal Templates.  

    The documents are existing documents NOT EMPTY DOCUMENTS.

    I will be making several personal templates ONE for each existing document.

    I thought I was clear.

    where do I report Microsoft links that are in error! 

    like a case that is almost as bad as a link that says Excel help and sends you to Word help.

    I am NOT asking for help with my code or issue.  Trying to let someone at Microsoft of something that makes Microsoft look bad.

  • I see. For some products you can use MS Connect website https://connect.microsoft.com/

     I didn't verify if you can use it to report Office bugs and Documentation errors.

  • Dave Patrick,

    Got any other links.

    I am still looking for one that would help with question.

    Also curious when the description of link I posted will stop stating has info that it does not or the missing info will be added to the Microsoft web site link goes to.

    To be fair site does have good info on making a New Word Template from scratch. BUT THAT WAS NOT WHAT I WAS ASKING FOR.

    Mark

  • This is "where is" forum for direction on where best to ask questions. I was suggesting you re-ask your question in that forum.

  • There is no way to move your current question to the Answers forum (as it's on a separate platform), so you need to follow David's answer and re-ask your question where he suggested.

    Not many people are checking this forum as this forum is only intended to help finding correct forum for your question. You rarely get the actual answer to your question here, only a direction as where to ask your question for better support.
