I did the same thing and it works for me. All of the styles come into
FrameMaker fine except the body paragraphs. For some reason they come in
with an override. I just bring up the paragraph designer and do an update
all to remove the overrides. It sure saves a lot of time applying new
styles in Frame. Now if I could just get them to do a little more
research... Oh well, I might wish myself out of a job. At least they put
something down for me to start with.

Subject: Creating a Word-to-Frame Template

Hi all,

I'm trying to create an MS Word 97 template which contains
all the styles
(with exactly the same style names) we use in our Frame
5.5.6 documents.
This template will be used by the development engineers to
processes in Word.

The Word documents will then be imported into Frame and,
because they have
the same style names as the Frame template, should import
pretty well, and
need minimal formatting afterwards.

The reason for this is that we have three Frame user
licences, but many more
MS Office licences, so this saves buying more Frame
licences, as well as
reducing the conversion effort.

Does anybody have any ideas on how to make this easier? And,
importantly, will it work?
