Default Accessing Templates in Word 2002

I seem to be unable to access my templates with File, New, etc. in Word 2002
(via a remote connection through Microsoft Terminal Server). When I click
FileNew, a "New Documents" panel opens on the right side of my screen.
Under "New from template" I click on General Templates, which ought to open
my collection of templates. But nothing happens! Meanwhile, the folder
containing all the templates is specified in ToolsOptionsLocation of
Files. That folder is on the network server. I can browse to that folder
without any problem and modify the templates if I want. I regularly utilize
templates from that folder when using my desktop PC on the network, such as
for letters, memos, etc. My secretary also uses the same collection. The
reason for using a single group of templates is to insure uniformity even
when I modify or update a template. If there is only one folder I only have
to update one template rather than the same template in multiple locations.
Is there some reason I cannot use my templates (or template folder) in this
situation?

"On my computer" is the Word 2003 terminology. "New from template: General
Templates" is correct in Word 2002.

Me, too, but we had a question recently that brought this difference in UI
to light.

Oddly, the problem seems to have resolved itself somehow. I went away for a
few days. that was probably the solution. Now when I click on General
Templates my colection of templates opens without a hitch!
