Add Word Template

Need to add a Word Template file.

Found the answer here

After the adding the file as indicated below you should see the template under File - New - General Tab

---text from link---
Open Word and click Tools - Templates and Add-Ins. The Template and Add-Ins dialog box opens.
  1. Click the Attach button button and the Attach Template dialog box opens.
  2. Note the directory by clicking the down-arrow next to the Look-in box. Mine was c:\Documents and Settings\Ron\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates.
    (Of course clearly where you expected to find it, right?)
  3. Open Explorer and find this directory.
    (Note: If you don't see it, don't panic. Click Tools - Folder Options in the Explorer menu bar, then click the View tab and click the radio button next to Show hidden files and folders.)
  4. Copy your template (.dot) file into this directory.
  5. Go back to Word and access the Templates and Add-Ins dialog box again. Click Attach and you should see your new template file. Click it to select it and click Open.
  6. Click OK and you should be in business.
