Hi :)
Yes, to both the last 2 questions.

I'm fairly sure you can just double-click on a .dot to open it in
LibreOffice and then
File - "Save as Template"

However it is likely to be a good idea to start afresh and create a new
template using .ott from the start.  MS formats tend to be riddled with
strange code and other junk and that has probably been added to over the
years as the template has been used in many different versions of MSO.

Regards from
Tom :)

Sort of getting off topic here :)

My understanding is that Herman has a template created for MS Word. He
wants to use this template in LO and therefore needs to convert it into the
format LO uses.

 It was designed for Office 97 to 2000 and only works on certain computers
with Office 2007/2010 as a plug-in.

Firstly can MS Word template be converted to an LO format? Does Herman
have to start from scratch?

        Out of the 2 sentences below, the first is part of my initial
response to the initial questioner;
             the second is part of the response by that Urmas.

 For the last 23 years Microsoft Office has changed its format TWICE.
Meanwhile, Libreoffice cannot open its own documents from 2001.

 You again
