The instructions sound a bit off. Sad You should be able to find the path for your template file by Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org > Paths. However just download the template to some convienent folder and load it from there. File > Template > etc.

I don't think so. Crying or Very sad
Sounds and sees like a rather normal, (ok its Windows Wink ), path.

Either

$installpath/OOo2/share/template or
/user/template

are the default places to install your templates. So that is probably meant at the downloadsite. To place the downloaded templates in the directory /user/template Very Happy

My problem was that the path when I had a look was C:/..../OpenOffice.org/user/templates
and when I look for it I cannot seem to find it. "user does not appear in the OOo folder Sad

Thank-you for the help! I didn't explain myself very well in my original post. How do I load the files into OOo?
