Unable to save word file as .dot RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to save the word file as a document Template i.e as .dot file I get the below error message.

    The operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.Please contact your syatem administrator.

    Looks like a GPO is blocking this but I am unable to get the exact setting where its is done.Please help.

  • I have checked the group policy applied on the OU in which user's account is located but I do not find the Block file formats in Microsoft Office Word 2003.But there is Block file formats folder directly under Administrative Templates.All the settings under the Save folder are in Disabled state.This is really confusing as to what is blocking in the system to save the file with .dot format.Is there anything else can be checked?
