Convert Word XP Macros to Word 2010

Q: Convert Word XP Macros to Word 2010

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.

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.

Where can I find them?

Thanks

Hello,
I am trying to figure out how to add to my current macro in order for it to go through subfolders as well. The code currently works fine but does not go deeper then the first folder. I need to it to go into all sub folders as well.

Currently it looks like this:
Sub conv()
sPath = "C:\Temp\"
sFile = Dir(sPath & "*.docx")
While sFile <> ""
With Documents.Open(sPath & sFile)
.SaveAs FileName:=sPath & Replace(sFile, "docx", "doc"), FileFormat:=0
.Close
End With
sFile = Dir
Wend
End Sub

Again i need to add to this so that it goes in and converts in sub folders as well.

Any help is extremly greatly appreciated.

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.

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

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

ActiveCell.Value = Date
'ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=today()"

How would I do it in word ?

I suggest you check the WRDSTART folder to see if there isn't a document stored there.
What this means is that either there bis a document or template in the WRDSTART forder or a macro was saved in the Normal.dot.

You could also close Word, delete Normal.dot (it's a hidden file) and then restart word, a new Normal.dot will be created but if you have special options stored in the Normal.dot, rename it to Normal.old so it won't open

Hello all,

I have Office 2010 installed. I often print an online news article to the xps format. Sometimes I have the need to convert this format to Word.


The question is how do I make the conversion without using a free software. It is preferable to use a software that would retain the original format of the article.


Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to help me find such a software.


Thank you.

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 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).

Hi,
Don't mind the curious ones, but I'm one of them. So anyway, almost one year ago now, the Word macro virus W97M/Marker.C was running rampant around Gordon College, with many teachers and students alike being infected. I was even infected with it thanks to one of my professors posting an assignment description document that had it. I was running AVG 9.0 at the time, and it was flagged many a time over. I think there were like six or so instances. My memory may be flaky, as my laptop has undergone many reformats since then, but what I do remember is trying to ignore AVG's warning, due to the fact that AVG has given me many false positives when I used it. The message Word gave me was that the document couldn't be opened because it wasn't available. But the strange part of that is that AVG had not removed anything from the file. I can think of two reasons why the file wouldn't run with the virus in it. Tell me which, if either, is correct. One is that Microsoft has since changed the macro format from 2003 and earlier versions of Word simply due to the many viruses that once existed for it, or two, that message was a very convoluted way of telling me that Windows 7 no longer supports Virtual device Drivers (*.vxd) as I was able to open the file after it had been cleaned up by Eset NOD32. Any knowledge you folks have would be very interesting, as I have always been curious about the very odd weekend of February 12, 2010. Now don't get me ... Read more

A:random curiosity about MS Word macro viruses and why (thank the Lord), they don't work in Word 2007/2010

I don't know the particulars of the macro virus you mention, but with Microsoft Office 2003, a significant change was implemented that effectively stopped the propagation of macro viruses.

Prior to Office 2003, macros were enabled by default, and opening a document with macros and auto-execute meant the macros were automatically executed (and thus the virus could infect and propagate).

With Office 2003, macro security was introduced. With a Microsoft Office 2003 default install, macros need to be signed with a certificate issued by a trusted root CA. Macros that are not signed will not be executed. Users have to explicitly lower the macro security level for unsigned macros to execute. Almost all macro viruses were unsigned.

When I send some friends a password protected word document created in Word 2010 they can't open it using word 2007 which is compatible with docx by using the correct password. I have no choice but to send as a Word doc instead of docx so they can open it.

Therefore I suspect some kind of encryption pack must be installed. I believe the user 1 has XP and user 2 has Win 2000 pro. are using XP. Do you know where these encryption packs are available?

Is there a solution to this problem?

My user has spent years building her Auto-Text feature within Word 2003 to the point it is now, but her company just bought her a new Windows 7 Pro machine with Office 2010 installed.

A:Help with migrating a Word 2003 file to Word 2010

Normal.dot is the global template for Microsoft Word and is stored in different locations on the system based on the version of Windows and Word.

You dont want to merge them you want to backup the existing normal.dot file to something like normal.old.
Then replace the file in the correct location, which I cant research for you right now.

The bad thing about doing things like this is that if normal.dot gets corrupted, all the work put in to this is lost!

Then it proceeds to send me to an internet site that explains in great detail how much danger there is in attempting to change the registry settings.

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!

Ok I am working at a company currently working on an ASP web page for internal use.

Some guy in the company decides (since I am the only available "IT" saavy person) to ask me a question about MS Word Macros.

He is creating a form in Word and when a person enters their info (i.e. First Name, Last Name etc.) it will be displayed on the 2nd page without them having to enter it again...

Ok maybe it is because I really REALLY hate word or because I have never used Macros but he went away a disappointed individual (not really) because I didn't have a clue how to help him.

ok I think thats it!

Not a macro.

On the form field, choose "calculate on exit"

On page 2, Insert-Cross Ref--Bookmark, and pick the bookmark name of the form field.

Hi i'm working with microsoft word and trying to build a macro, unfortunately it keeps giving me an error, this happens when i try to save the file as an xml file without good syntax. This pops up a window which i have to click ok on. is there anyway to click okay on a pop up window in a macro? thanks in advance!

A:word macros

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.

Good luck.

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 have the following macro and request help pls.

Sub splitfiles()

Hello I need help with a word macro...

What i want to do with that :
- Go to a bookmark that refers to a table and the then split that table wherever I have a specific word. Then I want to enumerate those tables with numbers from 1 to 99.

-Go to a bookmark that refers to another table table and the then split that table wherever I have a specific word(it is the same word as above.Then I want to copy the header from the main table and paste as header of all the tables created. Then I want to enumerate those tables with numbers from 100 to 999.

- The last step would be to intercalate the tables I created in step one1 and the ones created in step 2 as follow:

Table 1
Table 101
Table 2
Table 102

and so on...

Any ideas is it too hard ?

Hi all,

I'm just emailing to ask you guys a simple question. I understand that Macros are susceptible to infection from viruses, hence I have my virus scanner looking for any file that contains Macros - just so I can keep my eyes open for anything suspicious. 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.

Many thanks,
PCHammer

Does anyone know where I can find a good tutorial on recording macros in Microsoft Word?
 

A:Macros in Microsoft Word

About.com's Guide to Macro Recording

http://wordprocessing.about.com/od/workingwithmacro1/l/blmacrointro.htm

Best questions on here, are related to direct questions, about a particular problem, the best way to learn about macros is to record them, and work out which bit of code does what, and then learn how to edit it, to do exactly what you want it to do. The best way is to record, google it, edit it, and come on TSG for solutions to problem you come up against.
