Hi, all,

I can't believe I have to ask this, because it seems to be one of the most
basic things imaginable, but.... How do you tell Word to use a different
template for an existing document? Specifically, I have a document that uses I want to use a different .dot file, but for the life of me I
can't find how to get Word to do it. Apparently in older versions you could
do this by going to File>Template and changing it there... But MS in their
infinite wisdom have taken that menu item away in 2003.

Any help appreciated, and sorry for the newbie question. If there is a good
resource for looking up these kinds of things, point me to it and I'll
happily take this kind of basic stuff elsewhere.

Until next time....
