IndRepBaseTemplate.dot Causing Problems
This is becoming the bane of my life at the moment...
I have always had trouble getting my scripts to work properly on SIMS generated Word XML files and them throwing an error because the reference to IndRepBaseTemplate.dot has been lost, but it seems things have gotten much worse since the latest update and many of my previous workarounds no longer work.
Today I've come across the worst yet though: after exporting a batch of reports last night, today I can't open a single one of them. Each time, Word locks up and eventually closes and upon re-opening tells me that IndRepBaseTemplate.dot caused a serious error.
Any body else had this issue? Better yet, any body found a way to fix it?
I'm using Word 2010 in Windows XP Pro.
So far, I have tried (all worked before last SIMS update but no longer help):
- Putting a copy of IndRepBaseTemplate.dot in the same folder as the exported reports
- Writing a VBA routine to stop IndRepBaseTemplate being loaded when the document is opened
- Loading up an Individual Report in SIMS (which in turn puts a fresh copy of IndRepBaseTemplate in my temp folder)
PS: can anybody from Capita explain why IndRepBaseTemplate is needed in an exported report? I understand that when editing a template it is needed to add the context menus for adding aspects etc., but it does nothing but cause grief in the final document - surely you can find a way of removing the reference upon export? Even opening up a report in Linked Documents it throws an error!
