If you haven't done so already, read this:

http://word.mvps.org/faqs/customization/AutoText.htm

This article is directed at Word 2010, but I think it applies to 2007 as well:

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/microsoft_office_word/archive/2007/02/20/deploying-building-blocks.aspx

Since I often create additional building blocks after a template has
been deployed, I usually distribute building blocks in a separate file
in %APPDATA%\Document Building Blocks, rather than in the template
file. Obviously, that won't work very well if the template is used by
numerous people.
