"I think you can have your very own, customized templates for your documents - In any word document, if you go to Tools - templates/Add-Ins you can point to a template file of your choice. Hope this helps.
EDIT: Sorry I didnt notice that your Word version is 2007. MIne's 2003 - so I cant say for sure if the options still apply in 2007. You can perhaps try and see if it has been retained though."
