Yes that is exactly what I'm trying to do. I would like to be able to create a macro to do that like I can in Word. Then to put a macro button on the quick access tool bar in each program. I only need to know the script to create the macro for each program. After that I can add the button to my toolbars.
PS - I'm in Australia, so our time difference means I find your emails much later.
Now, for your MS PowerPoint, you cannot Record a Macro like that of MS Word so you need this code:
Sub File_New_Template()Presentations.Open ("C:\Users\rajess\Downloads\Real_Estate1.potx"), msoTrue, msoTriStateMixedEnd Sub
In this code, just replace the POTX file with your actual File Template so that a new instance of the presentation is created.

I'm having trouble. In Publisher I have three templates. Bulletin 1, Bulletin 2, and Bulletin 3. They show under the MY TEMPLATES folder.
My templates are stored in:
I have typed in exactly what you gave me changing pbWizardAdvertisements, 6 to Bulletin 1.pub - but it's not working.
I am unable to get Powerpoint to work too. The name of the template I use is "Order of the Mass - St John's - 6.00pm (choir).potx"
Could you please give me further assistance.
I'm still having problems. I've tried a few things, but feel I'm missing something.
Would you be able to walk me through it from top to bottom in Powerpoint, from going in to create the macro, giving it a name and writing the VBA script. After that I should be able to put the macro button on the quick access toolbar and naming it like I do in Word.
I also noticed in Powerpoint that the macro appeared (even though it didn't work) and when I shut down Powerpoint and re-opened it, the macro had disappeared!
I would like to call the macro
"St John 6pm choir"
The name of my template is
"Order of the Mass - St John's - 6.00pm (choir).potx"
The path is "C:\Users\Suzanne\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates\Order of the Mass - St John's - 6.00pm (choir).potx"
Many thanks for your help.
I think you are right about the desktop solution for my template file. It is certainly easier than creating an add-in!
Many thanks for all your help. I've learnt a lot along the way.
I was wondering if setting up Publisher to do something similar with my documents would also mean creating an add-in?
