Default Styles - can they be imported from one doc to another?

I have set up a series of formatting Styles in a Word document and want them
to be accesible to other users in my office.

Is there a way of sharing Styles between documents?
Surely there is a better system than always having to re-create the styles
in each document?
And preferably not the low-tech method of 'Saving As' and copying/pasting
all the text?

I know that Adobe products allow one to Import Styles but haven't found this
feature yet in Word.

Styles can be copied. The low-tech method you describe can often be
quickest, though.
Take a look at http://addbalance.com/word/movetotemplate.htm#Styles or
http://addbalance.com/usersguide/styles.htm#Organizer for instructions on
using the Organizer to copy styles.

See http://addbalance.com/word/movetotemplate.htm for step-by-step
instructions on moving / sharing / copying / backing-up customizations
including AutoText, AutoCorrect, keyboard assignments, toolbars, macros,
etc.
