Word 2000 Delete duplicate Macros?

Q: Word 2000 Delete duplicate Macros?

Hi All,

I have a few macros in Normal.dot including some which load a new letter with different Headers and Footers for business letters and personal letters.

I have assigned buttons for the macros BUS HOM BEN

When I click "New" in the menu I get a new page using the Normal.dot template showing my Macros.

Now, if I click the button for the "Business Macro" = BUS, I get the correct new letter with Business header, but now it has duplicate Macros as in....

I go to the Customize menu and in the Macro list it shows them duplicated, no surprise there.

How can I delete the excess Macros?

I need to create a smart document using query boxes, fields and macros. The problem is that I never use macros before, anyone can give me a quick "know how"?


I am here to stay!!

A:Word 2000 Macros know how

There is no quick "know-how" in creating macros. You can get a good start by recording a macro to perform your task.

Hit Start-Macros-Record new macro.
Name the macro, no spaces in name.
Click on Toolbar to place a button on the toolbar that will run your macro, hit keyboard to assign a keystroke to perform your macro.
Hit OK.
You should now be in record mode.
Perform any steps you would like a macro to do automatically.
Hit the Stop record button on the recording toolbar.

Things to be aware of:

In the first part of creating the macro, make sure you store the macro in normal.dot if you want it to be available for any document, or in "current document" if you're creating a specific file from which to run the macro(s).

Hope this helps.

I'm new to macros and have recorded an AutoOpen one for a particular document that is based on a custom template. When I save the document containing the AutoOpen macro, close it and try to re-open it, I receive a VBA error message that macros are disabled for the document. This tells me that it is actually trying to run the macro, but is unsuccessful.

Any suggestions on a 'quick-fix' for enabling these macros?

Thanks in advance.

I have an issue with Microsoft Word 2000. I work with it and use macros as my "life source," lol. Every so often all of my macros will just be randomly dumped. So I go through and remake them all (3,000 of them). Please, if there is any way, could someone tell me how to restore those macros before I pull out all of my hair? I have tried macro security settings and also detect and repair, neither worked. Thank you much!

I am using an Excel worksheet with several thousand records listed. On a daily basis, I get an updated list, but I need to keep hold of some of the 'old' records.
At present I'm copying the new list, adding it to the end of my existing list and then filtering it so that only unique records are visible.
Obviously, this means the list is ever-increasing with many duplicated records (hidden or otherwise).
Is there a way to simply delete the duplicate records (so I can just keep one record of each) rather than hide them?

I am converting an old MS Word template we have for our office to install properly on 64 bit systems which basically just inserts some small preformatted .doc files into a template which you can save as a new file. All I did was change the lookup for the file location to grab the program files environment variable so it would go to Program Files or Program Files (x86) when it should.

Now the issue I'm seeing is that the toolbar it places provides shortcuts for 10 or so of these inserts and 9 of them work. The last one gives the error "The macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of your Macro security settings". This error popped up on all these shortcuts before I dropped macro security settings down to medium, after which the rest of them worked just fine. If I go to tools->Macros->Macros to see the list of available macros I can run it directly from there and it works just fine.

The problem insert has no different code at all (except for the filename which it inserts), but is the only document to have a picture within it if that helps. I'm not very familiar with word or the macro editor within it but I was not able to find a way to edit the toolbar that appears in 2003 (Which is not present in 2007).

Some extra info: I am seeing this issue on a win8 64 bit laptop running office 2003. On my other laptop I have office 2007 and do not have the toolbar shown in 2003 at all. The toolbar issue may be present there but I have no idea how to e... Read more

Open the document(s) in question and press ALT + F11 to bring up your Visual Basic editor. On the left hand side of the VB editor is your project explorer window. In the project explorer window you will see a folder called "Modules" that you can open to show all the modules attached to the document. These modules is where you VBA code is stored. You can right click each module and selection the option to export to the location of your choice. Once exported you can copy or save them to another machine and then re-import them by openining the VB editor on the other compuer and choosing FILE >> IMPORT.

I am converting a large website of Microsoft Word files to TeX files and have written several useful Word macros to automate this process. When I converted from Word 2007 to Word 2010, the macros I wrote disappeared (a lot of supplied macros do appear). They don't appear even when I open a doc file where they have already been used in that file under Word 2007. It didn't occur to me to save the macros elsewhere, and apparently installing Word 2010 destroyed them.

Hi All,

My office is upgrading from Office XP to Office 2010. We have a dozen different macros written for Office XP. They are all Word documents. Each produces a different form. Some have only about a dozen fields to populate. Others have up to 100 different options.

These macros run great in Word XP but crash when run in 2010 with a variety of VB errors. All our users are running Windows 2007 with the latest service pack.

Is there an easy method to upgrade these macros to 2010 format, without having to learn enough VB programming to recode all of them? I have an MSDN subscription and one idea was to try a gradual upgrade - from Word XP to Word 2003, then Word 2007, then Word 2010 - just alot of testing VMs to set up...

Thank you,

Mike C.

A:Microsoft Word 2000 aka MS Word 2000 - Sending Email - Need Help Configuring

Word itself does not send (or receive) e-mail messages. You may configure Word to be your e-mail editor, but it still requires an e-mail program (such as MS Outlook) to send messages.

You can send e-mails from within Word by using File, Send To, Mail Recipient (or Mail Recipient as Attachment), but this still uses Outlook to do the sending and receiving.

Trying to create a macro to trim incoming emails then save them in a linked folder (to Access 2000). First, O2k lets you use Word as your editor for new messages (therefore you can record a macro), but not for incoming emails (no recording). Also notice the difference in the "Find" programs. I've recorded a macro in the new message editor using a copy of an incoming email. Pasted the code to the VBA editor in the incoming editor, but I get an error in the code at "Find" section. The emails have a set format so I'm using Find to locate the trimmed sections. Any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Coming from a programming perspective you would have to grab the window handle of the pop up window and close it that way. Other than that I'm not sure you will be able to surpress the window output or do much of anything else.

Trying to create a template with text form fields but need the fields to be fixed so the ones below don't move down as I add text to the ones above. The only solution I can see is to run a macro on entry to each text form fields to position it. Is there any other solution? If not can anyone help me with the VB code and how to set it up.

A:word macros

No code necessary.

Generally, you use the properties of the form field to set the allowable number of characters to enter, right? Won't work for you.

Instead, here's what I do. For each "paragraph" I want to allow, suppose I want to restrict it to 1" high of text. Insert-Table, 1 column, 1 row. Set the height of the row to EXACTLY 1". You'll really want to type some text into it to find out a VERY nice height that will not cut off the bottom of line of text.

Anyway, this won't keep your people from entering extra text. But the won't see it if they just keep typing, and it will not force-break your page or even the 1" barrier....

Hope this helps!

Dear All

I have been fighting with this macro for some time now and now request your help.

I have 1 single word file with numerous client statements. There is no page break as i have copied them from a txt file which has a digital identifier.

I want to create separate files for each client and the unique identifier after each client statement is "security.".The files have a unique client id which is always at a specific location.

The macro should
1. Search for the unique identifier between two clients
2. Copy all data between the first two identifiers
3. Open a word file and paste the copied data onto that file.
4. Save and Close the file with the file name being the client id. eg 10000022 as in the macro. the next file will have the next client id name.

So if i have 500 clients , i should be having 500 files. each of the files will have data as per the unique identifiers.

I am not sure whether someone out there can help me with this.

We design extensive number of Word templates that we distrubute throughout the department to fill in content. Now in our case this is not straight template such as fax/letter template where you might have control over where/what user will type. With our documents, the content varies widely and it's difficult to know what the user will want or need to input (tables, figures, etc.)

So in other words, they are not simply filling in content..they are creating documents. We just providing them with the required guidelines.

Here is what I want to automate:

We get these lengthy documents that user creates. Our job is to ensure they follow the required guidelines for format and content.

We spend hours screening through lengthy documents to conduct simple MS Word formatting such as checking whether styles are applied, margins are set, and etc. It has become rather tedious process and time consuming, something folks with our bkg shouldn't be doing.

A:Word Macros and Templates

It depends on what formatting you're going to have to do. It would be easy enough to record a macro that selects the entire contents of a document, formats the fonts, paragraphs, borders, removes any styles (or adds one), sets standard margins and print areas, page orientation, indents etc etc
You could then create a button and stick it on one of your toolbars and formatting would be a one-click deal.

However, you might find that you don't want to be selecting and formatting all of the data as in doing so, you could lose certain specific formatting that you want to keep - e.g. if you format the font of a whole document, the formats of items like sub-titles and bulleted lists can be lost.

Using tools like AutoFormat can be useful (and could be used as part of the macro), but you might be trusting the machine to know what's best and it isn't always what you intended.

The company I work for has been getting a Word Macros Virus. I have checked in the normal.dot file to look for macros, but have been unsuccesful. Possibly because I'm not familiar with word enough to find the Macros that are enabled. We are for the most part running Win '98 with some using Win '95. I'm lead to believe its the Concept Macro Virus, by how its attaching itself after a file is being prompted to be saved. Please educate me!

A:Word Macros Virus

Boone: get a virus checker on everybody's PC. In the meantime, have everyone close Word and rename their normal.dot file to normal1.dot. If they've got macros in their normal.dot, they can copy them from normal1.dot by going to Tools-macro-macros and using the organizer button. It's pretty straightforward. Go to Tools-Options-General tab and make sure they have "macro virus protection" checked. If your company doesn't really use macros, tell them not to open files that give the warning until YOU have checked them out. Also, on the Save tab under tools-options, select "prompt to save the normal template" because then, when a macro HAS written itself to their normal.dot file, they'll be asked if they want to save the changes to the normal.dot file. Tell them not to! Changing toolbars and default fonts, etc., will also "change" the normal.dot file so make them aware that when they have done these kinds of things, they SHOULD save the changes to normal.dot.

I'll be writing an article for the next TSG newsletter that explains how to get rid of macro viruses in Word (above) and Excel. Look for it within the month--make sure you're a subscriber. I've put some good stuff about Office in the last two issues, print them out and make copies for your users (and yourself).

Hi all,

I also know that Auto Macros in MS Word XP (AutoOpen, AutoSave) are particularly prone to becoming infected - therefore, it would be great if someone could tell me what file they are contained in, so I know where to look during a virus scan if I am alerted to any problems.

After I open the file/document a dialog box comes up to guide me through filing out the form. This is what I want to delete. The dialog box has a "cancel" button that I click on and the dialog box goes away and the form appears. Once the dialog box is gone I can start filling out the form. Here is how I tried to find the macro to delete it:

With the open document on my screen I click on Tools>Macros, but no macros are listed. Also, when I click on Tools>Macros>Visual Basic Editor>Macros no macros are listed.

The Macro must be hidden, but it has to be in the document somewhere to activate when I open the file.

Hopefully, this additional information will provide a clue to getting to the macro. If someone would like to look at the document or discuss this with me, my email is removed by moderator Anne Troy.



A:Disabling macros in MS word

I?m using MS Word 2010
I made a file called normal.file and put in some macros to be used in the ribbon
I?m having problems with some of the code. I tried to use what I use for Excel, but it doesn?t work.

I want to have a ribbon button to save and close:

Sub save ()
yesno = MsgBox(" Save and Close?", vbYesNo)
Select Case yesno
Select Case yesno
Case vbYes
Case vbNo
End Select
End Sub

I also want a button to make all of the text that I highlight into a lower case.
In excel, I highlight a cell and use this

Sub lowercase()
Selection.Name = "here"
For Each x In Range("here")
x.Value = LCase(x.Value)
End Sub

I use this to put in today?s date at the cursor

Sub date ()
ActiveCell.Value = Date
'ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=today()"
Selection.Value = Selection.Value
End Sub

How would I do it in word ?

Sorry, I can't find any "code brackets:

Quick question -

A client of mine currently has a macro setup on their toolbar to automatically do a bin-print, ie brings up a box asking how many letter headed and how many plain prints they want - it then does two print jobs, one from each relevant tray. They have a new printer however, that is completely ignoring this setting and prints two jobs, both from the same tray.

I have no experience with macros, so can someone tell me either how to edit the macro (called normal.binprint.binprint), or create a new one with the right values.

Many thanks,
PS - If you select Macros, Binprint, Step Into, you get the following message "project is unviewable"

Is there a way of saving Word Macros prior to installing Office 2003 (other than the 'Save My Settings Wizard') which I asume saves the macros? How are the macros actually stored?

I am fairly new to marcos in Microsoft Word.

I need to write a macro that asks for a starting number and an ending number from the user. The page will then display the first number and print that page and continue incrementing the number and printing out that page until it reaches the ending number. I have the printing function down, but need to display the incrementing numbers on these pages. Here is what I have as of now:

Sub NewMacro()

Dim startNum As String
Dim endnum As String
Dim x As Long
startNum = InputBox("Enter Start Number: ", , 1)
endnum = InputBox("Enter End Number: ", , 1)

For x = startNum To endnum

Next x

End Sub

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
