Default Applying Styles from a template to an existing document

A colleague emails that:

"You want to attach the template, and then use the Organizer to copy
the
styles from the template into the open document. This way, the styles
in the
template are available in the open document. When you copy the styles
you
are asked whether you want to replace the existing styles, to which you

answer yes. You then use Format - Style and formatting, to apply the
correct styles."


But this doesn't work for me.


Why not I wonder?

I wonder, too.

You need to be more explicit about what problems you are having. What,
exactly, are you doing? What happens? What do you expect to happen instead?
