Set template to save in different location

I've created a Word doc template and I would like to arrange it so that
when someone first saves the document the folder they are prompted to
save in is not 'My Folders' but some other network location I've
specified in the template. Is this possible?

It is possible, but only with a macro. The article explains the 
technique, although not how to write a complete macro.

Install this macro in your template (see if needed):

Sub FileSave()
    If Len(ActiveDocument.Path) = 0 Then
        With Dialogs(wdDialogFileSaveAs)
            .Name = "Y:\temp\"
        End With
    End If
End Sub

Change the path in quotes to the location you want. It could be in UNC 
format (\\server\share) instead of a mapped drive path.

How do I set up an argument which asks for multiple criteria
I am trying to use an argument that asks for one of three criteria (2345P, 8319T, or 7026J) in cell C108, and if it finds it, enters the amount of yet another cell, G108 into cell K108, and if not enters 0 into cell K108. It seems there are too many arguments for the "if" argument, and I can't seem to get the "lookup" argument to work either. Is there another argument I should be working with?

How do I set the 'Set Synchronizing Client' field

We need to tick them so that they are able to synchronize tasks etc. Can any one help me find out why these are greyed out and then set them so that they can synchronize thanks In my experience, that checkbox is always greyed out for the first install that is performed for a user.

Appointment duration different between Outlook and MS-CRM
Does anyone know why an All Day Event on Outlook and an All Day Event in MS-CRM have different durations. It seems that an All Day Event in MS-CRM is calculated based on the individuals start and end times in their CRM user record but an Outlook All Day Event is the full 24 hours regardless of the start and end time you set up in Calendar options. This makes it difficult to use CRM for reporting the total amount of time spent working on a lead or opportunity if individuals are creating all day appointments in Outlook and synchronizing the data back to MS-CRM Any ideas? -- Simon Morri...

saving multiple sheets in a workbook
I have 1100 worksheets in a workbook all named after what I need to save them as, but I can't find any kind of "bulk save" where Excel can take each of the sheets and save them as individual files vs saving them all in a workbook. I don't want to click on "Save as" for each of the files, then manually enter the name of the worksheet, especially since there is no hotkey assigned to "save as". Does anyone know of a way around this? Or perhaps a shortcut for doing it? Hi Try -- Regards Ron de Bruin
