(Windows XP) I've made a nifty letter template (called myletter.dot) with my return address and so on; now I'd like to make one for my son, who is a limited user. I copied myletter.dot from
Documents and Settings/me/Application Data/Microsoft/Templates
into
Documents and Settings/him/Application Data/Microsoft/Templates.
But when I log onto his account, Application Data does not appear under Documents and Settings/him, and I can't load the template.

Thank you.

You could just copy the the .dot template into his my documents or even his desktop. Then when he wants to use the template, all he has to do is double click on the file. It works exactly as if it was stored with the other templates, except it is now much easier to find.

Application Data may be a hidden directory so make sure to enable viewing of hidden files and folders. in Window Explorer

(MY COMPUTER --> TOOLS --> FOLDER OPTIONS --> VIEW --> SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS)

You can also modify which directory Word uses for its template files by opening Word and clicking
TOOLS >> OPTIONS >> FILE LOCATIONS >> USER TEMPLATES

Regards,
Rollin
