Today I was working on a template for a simple little travel report. One of the admins requesting it also asked for an explanatory document, which would give some advice on how to use the template. (I hope to get eventual approval for an in-house web site that will have all our templates along with companion explanataion docs.)

I was able to get most of the information into the File Properties dialog box. I would like to direct the users to that dialog box so they can add their own information. I looked around through macros and fields, but I didn't see anything quite the same as what I want - a popup click-through information window, directing the user to the properties dialog whenever a new blank document is created from the template. Or can I set the template so every time a new document is made from it, that document displays its properties box first?

I'm using Word 97, but for the customer's sake we have to Save As Word 6.0/95.

Anyone heard of such a thing?
