Default Outlook 07 templates unable to open

I'm running Office 7 on a Win7 64bit machine. I've created a few templates but cannot get them to load/open. When creating I follow the instructions:
  • Save As
  • navigate to a folder
  • name
  • save
When I attempt to open/load:
  • Tools
  • Forms
  • User Templates in File System
  • navigate to the template
  • It appears as a folder
I'm stumped, what am I doing wrong?
Thanks

hi tony,

The issue is probably because you aren't saving the file as a template format.

What you gotta do is:

  • open new message
  • type in what you want to save as a template
  • click Save As
  • navigate to a folder
  • type in name
  • select type of file "save as type" (right under where you type in the name of the file)
  • select "outlook message format" or "outlook template"
  • save
When open/load:
  • Tools
  • Forms
  • User Templates in File System
  • navigate to the template
OR
  • navigate to the file
  • double click on it (it should open automatically in Outlook"

hope this helps!

Melissa
