Hello all,

In my office we have all the office templates on a shared network drive. When I customize an employee's computers i always have microsoft point to that directory for workgroup and user templates.

However, typically, on a working machine, after this is done, an "add-in" bar is created in the ribbon and is available to select to invoke these templates.

Lately, i have tried everythin to get this add-in bar to re-appear. Such as:

-Relocating the files from the network drive to the local drive
-Duplicating copies of the templates to the MS office startup folder in program files.


im at a loss here because it seems as though in the past when i had done this (correctly) i was never thoroughly thinking about my methods (as though one day it suddenly wouldnt work the same way) and now im doing exactly the same process, yet cant get the templates to appear in the add-ins tool bar.

edit: essentially, after i point the location of the templates to that directory, nothing happens. obviously the locations are correct, but no add-in bar. and no way to invoke them.

I know this is showing Excel, but the same should apply for Word 2007: http://grok.lsu.edu/Article.aspx?articleId=4562

This does get the add-in tool bar visible, but im still having issues getting known templates to work. I'll have to take a deeper investigation into the issue i'm having but for the most basic question, the Add-in bar did appear. You can close this topic.
