Default How can I get a Word template to remember outline numbering scheme

I have created a Word template, but each time I open a document attached to
the template, I have to re-define the outline numbering scheme. How can I
get the template to 'remember' what the outline numbering scheme is?

A document cannot be attached to a template. It sounds like you don't really
understand how templates and styles work. I suggest you visit Word MVP
Shauna Kelly's website http://www.shaunakelly.com/word/ and read the series
of articles about styles, outlines, and templates.
