A template is a document that has pre-defined settings, such as margin settings or default text. For example, if you want to write letters by using a certain letterhead, you can design that letterhead and save it as a template. Whenever you open that template, the letterhead is ready, and then you only have to add the body text of the letter.
For each of the Works modules, you can create multiple templates, and then set one template as a default template for each module.
Create a Template
Open a Template
Remove a Default Template
NOTE: If you delete a template that you have specified as a default template, you receive the following error message the next time you try to create a file of that type:
When you click OK, you create a new, blank document. The entry for the custom template is removed from the list.
User-defined template <path>:\Msworks\Template\<filename> for this works tool not found. Press OK to clear this dialog and create a new file.
In Works 2000, Works 6 or Works 7.0, the default folder for custom templates is:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Works\TemplateNOTE: If you delete a Works 2000, Works 6 or Works 7.0 custom template that is specified as the default template, Works 2000, Works 6 or Works 7.0 Word Processor automatically resets the original default template, Normal.wpt. If the Normal.wpt template is missing, the Works Word Processor creates a new template automatically.
For more information about how to use and edit templates, see the Works Answer Wizard in the Works program.
