I have created a MS Word template depending on document properties. Is it possible to enable some sort of a flag in the document to make Word show the document properties dialog whenever a file is created using my template?

I don't prefer macros, as they would cause a warning dialog to appear. Is there a different way?

This is not at document creation, but rather at the first save event, and is merely a setting, not a macro.

Word 97-2003 you can check Tools>Options>Save> Prompt for document properties, and the properties dialog will display before saving.

That setting is, I think, user specific, not document specific. If true, then all users must enable this option? I guess in that case all users could also be told to accept a macro. –  Arjan Oct 27 '09 at 7:27

@arjan, you might be able to use a Group Policy to make everyone's computer enable the prompt setting. –  matt wilkie Apr 13 '11 at 15:47
    
Since there doesn't seem to be a different solution at the moment (excluding macros), I'm accepting this answer. Thanks. –  Hosam Aly Apr 21 '11 at 19:01
