Word 2002 + templates fields

Hi,

 

I've been working with templates and both Word 2002 and the ACT word processor.  The field selection works properly in the ACT word processor but the package is primitive compare to Word.

 

This forum has in the past dealt with the issue of the field selection not working properly in Word 2003. If understood correctly, there were two fixes, one was a small registry fix and the other was downloading a hotfix from Microsoft. The problem with the hotfix is it's for Word 2003.

 

I've been able to cut and paste fields from the demo adt files but that's only a few fields.  Furthermore, there isn't a place in the docs that shows how to change a template field from one type to the next. For instance, manually editing <BusinessLine1> to <BusinessLine2> won't work.

 

Could some kind soul please post an adt file with all of the fields?

 

That's all the fix I'll need and it will be readily useful to others.

 

Thanks.

I've attached a template with all the default fields.

 

Try following this knowledgebase article to resolve the field list issue.

That adt files does the trick nicely, thanks, and it's more comfortable than turning off macro security.
