Default The styles I set up disappear

I am formatting some documents which should look the same in terms of style.
So I set up styles for headings, etc. in one document, thinking that they
would go into a general style database (like all styles). But when I started
on the second document, I can't find the styles from the first one. Do I have
to reset the styles every time, or make a special template to do this? I
would like to avoid creating yet another template if I can.

I'm using Word 2003.

Thanks,
Suroor

When you create a style, you must check the box for "Add to template" so
that it will be saved to Normal.dot and be available to new documents you
create. If you will be doing a lot of style creation or modification, it's a
good idea to create a template specifically for that type of document; see
