Location of Word Startup Macros .dot file

For Word 2003 on Server 2008 I was having an issue whereby the <MyMacrosFile>.dot was not loading on Startup of Word. This was because I had put the file in the Templates location of Server 2008 not the Startup location.

SOLUTION

In Word 2003 Tools > Options > File Locations

The length is limited, so select Startup and press Modify button to see full directory. Put the <MyMacrosFile>.dot file in here.

Seems unnecessary to have a blog entry, but this has caused me some minor lost time, as I while the file was in Templates, I was able to then load it, but this was a little time consuming.
