Default how to determine the full path of the template from which a document was created?

Let's say I can create a document from a template ("C:\some\arbitrary\path\mytemplate.dotm", for the sake of argument). How can I programmatically get the full path of the template from which the document was created?

In the VBA window, click "Tools" and then "References...". Ensure that the checkbox next to the template in question is checked. To get the path of this template, use the following code:
Code:
mytemplate.ThisDocument.Path
Where "mytemplate" is the name of your template. I think that should work.

The VBA code for retrieving the active document's template path is:
ActiveDocument.AttachedTemplate.Path
