Automatically update linked fields in Microsoft Word on opening.

I am linking fields in a Microsoft Word template to an EPDM data card using these instructions.  I have created the word template and saved it in EPDM where it can be accessed by the EPDM template.  I then created an AutoOpen macro to automatically update fields upon opening. The AutoOpen macro works on my computer but no one else’s because that’s where it was created.  I then followed instructions for transferring the macros to another  computer.   My concerns are that it seems that following macro transfer instructions means that I will overwrite any existing macros and the macro will run every time a word doc is opened, not just this one.  Any ideas how to insert a macro into the normal.dotm file on everyone else’s computer without overwriting?
