    Importing Styles with Microsoft Word

    I have a macro that runs across all files in a given folder. My Normal.dotm global template has the 3 font styles that the macro uses, however the macro stops because it repeatedly cannot find the style the macro calls upon.

But I just cannot get it to work...

    Here's what I have so far:

    Any help at all with this? I have about a hundred files that need formatted, so importing individually is kind of out of the question... Thanks in advance!

    An extremely simple method of copying new Styles from a source document to a set of target documents is to create a series of paragraphs using those Styles in the source document (if they're paragraph Styles, the paragraphs don't need any text), add the following macro to the source document, open the source document and all the target documents, then run the macro.

    Of course, you can use the same principle for looping through a folder full of documents.
