Questions at me to all template as a whole: how it works?
Esteem about superstructures.
Construction of interfaces is used at creation of superstructures more often. The superstructure represents the invisible document with the built in VBA-code and with own additions to the interface, automatically opened by application at start. At start it does not show the body (i.e. document contents - the text, pictures and so forth), and is shown only by the changes in the interface and the connected macroes. Thus, Microsoft application Office adds the functional, and allows to edit other documents, using again received functions.
The document of a superstructure for Word has.dotm extension. Actually, the superstructure for Word is a normal template with support of macroes. For superstructures Excel and PowerPoint there are separate extensions-.xlam and.ppam accordingly.
Superstructures.xlam and.ppam it is simple so do not open in applications as the document for editing, therefore while such superstructure is not ready, it save as the normal document with support of macroes. And here the template.dotm can be opened in Word as a template.
