    Solved: Conflicts between tabs

    I have two global Word templates loading from the Startup folder, and both contain Ribbon customizations. One of the templates (Template1) adds some custom groups and controls into the built-in AddIns tab; the other (Template2) modifies the built-in Home tab and creates a custom Tab.

    The problem is some of the dropdown boxes defined in Template2 do not get populated unless I remove Template1 from the Startup folder and restart Word.

    Can someone shed any light on why this might be occurring?

    Thanks,

    Terry

    Terry,

    If they have ribbon customizations, why are they adding to the Addins tab?

    I'm no Wordie, Excel and databases are my thing, but if you post the XML and workbooks, I will take a look.

    Thanks for offerring, xid.

    I was so fed up with the conflict thing, I ended up combining the two templates, which eliminated the problem.

    Cheers,
    Terry
