Macros lost when I went from Word 2007 to Word 2010

Q: Macros lost when I went from Word 2007 to Word 2010

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

I need to find out if there is a way to copy all the macros I wrote and use in Word 2002 to Word 2007. I have both versions installed at the moment.

Also, is there a way to transfer settings such as all my auto correct, etc (although this is less important)

A:Solved: How can I copy macros from Word 2002 to Word 2007?

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.

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.

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.

Word 2007 User 1: Word launches no password box no error messages just the blue screen.

Word 2007 User 2: Gets the error message: ?Word cannot open this file . The encryption type used is not available. Contact the author of the file. More encryption types are available in the High Encryption Pack.?

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? The other possibility might be for me to reduce the encription level when I create a password protected docx but I have no idea how to do that.

Is there a solution to this problem?

Because I do teaching for people who have both versions (2007 & 2010) of Word, I have to keep both on my computer. How do I get .doc and .docx to associate with Word 2010?

Because I work mostly in 2010, I want to default to opening with 2010 but I can't do it. When I do try to correct the association (through the Control Panel) it WON'T associate with 2010.

Greetings,

I am using Windows 7, Word 2007. Though I have some experience with Word macros, I have not been successful in deriving a macro that will re-position content throughout a document.

Here is an example of what I desire to accomplish:

BEFORE: 1999, No. 91 (Adj. Sess.),

AFTER: 1999, Adj. Sess., No. 91,

In this example, the macro would need to re-position "(Adj. Sess.)," and remove the parentheses.

In addition, the record in this example contains different enumerations following "No." -- e.g., "No. 44", "No. 157", etc. Wild cards for this wrinkle seem to be of no help, but I want to be sure I am not missing something.

Thanks for your kind attention and input.

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

Hi,

I can record simple search and replace macros in word 2007 but my abilities stop there.

Back in the days when I was using Word Perfect I could easily write macros that search for a string, exit the search function, select all text until a different string occurred, and then marked that text red, and then repeat until end of document.
In that way I could easily, e.g. in text formatted as below, find and colour everything Bob says red. I would search for "Bob:" turn selection on, move and select everything until the next ^p (which signals that Bob has stopped speaking), change formatting to red, and then repeat until end of document.

Ted: Hi, Bob. How are you?
Bob: Fine. And you?
Ted: I've got a splitting head ache.
Bob: You-d better have an aspirin, then.
// ...etc etc etc... //


In MS-Word 2007 I have not been able to perform such automation, and I have no luck googling for tutorials either. I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.

Thanks!

Does anyone know what's going on here with this and know how I can rectify this & change this back somehow so I can open & read these docs in Word 2007 again?

I can open Word 2007 and make a new document and save it but if I go to open it again it has been converted into this other file with the orange page icon and I cannot open it.

(I can open & save in wordpad - the wordpad doc can be saved in My Docs and it will reopen so I can read it again. Also my music, picture and video files all open ok.)

If you saved the file in the "new" Word 2007 format (with a file extension of .docx) then you will be unable to open it in the other applications.

For Word 2003 you can install a converter, but I know of no XLM converter for WordPerfect.

When using Word 2007 you need to "save as" Word 97-2003 format to retain backwards compatibility.

Are the following items true and if not, what is the correct procedure?

1. You cannot automatically format a number in a table as currency unless it is the answer in a formula. You can, however, type in the dollar sign by yourself.
2. The only way to do sums in a table is using the above, left, right, etc. layout (you cannot use regular cell references)
3. If 2 above is correct, that means you cannot do things like sum cells that are not directly above, below or to the direct right or left of where you want the total (ie: you cannot sit in what would be cell c2 in excel and add a1 +b1 and put the answer in c2).

3. This one isn't a statement, really. But it still means 2 is false. If you insert a table and immediately create formulas in it like it's an Excel file, you CAN use cell references. It gets screwed up if you start inserting rows and/or merging cells, etc. That's why this never works for anyone.

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).

I've just downloaded Student and Home Office 2010, and for some reason I now cannot open documnents that are Word 2007. I also cannot save work onto my memory stick, as for some reason, it saves the document as Word 2007, even though I am doing the work on Word 2010! (I only ever had a trial version of 2007, never the whole thing and it is no longer on my comp) I am starting a history course soon, and their online docs are 2007, and again, I can't open them. A message pops up saying that 'the file does not have a programme associated with it for perfoming this action' thats what pops up every time. Can someone tell me what on earth I need to do to rectify this? Thanks so much!!

Do you see Word in the resulting display?

Whenever I use Word (other apps and the desktop are fine) the mouse pointer constantly changes (every second or faster) its appearance. This occurs so quickly that I can barely make out the different components. It seems to rotate/cycle between the standard thick white arrowhead, an I-shaped cursor with four small adjacent horizontal lines, and a blue circle. I first noticed this while using Word 2007 so I upgraded to Word 2010 but the problem persists. My OS is Win7 Professional.

A:Wacky mouse pointer when using Word 2007/2010

For weird things I usually shut the computer down, pull the power cord out [Desktop] or unplug the power cord and battery [Notebook], unplug any keyboard and mouse or wireless dongle, wait a minute or two and try again. If the keyboard and/or mouse are wireless I change the battery to known good or new ones.

While I was printing a document on Word 2010 Monday (using a Dell studio s15z laptop), and the printer just stopped mid-job. Troubleshooting, I turned it off, rebooted the laptop -- and now Word has no printers, it has even lost the option to print to a pdf file through Adobe Acrobat. When I try to add a printer I get "The Active Domain Directory Services is currently unavailable". I can still see the printers in "Devices and Printers" and just downloaded a new driver for the printer I have here at work (an HP Laserjet 1018). I print via USB cable, not a network, and can still see other printers (available via network, which I don't use) when I try to add a device via the control panel. But Word sees nothing and refused to 'add'. What gives? (updating Adobe Acrobat didn't help either)

A:Word 2010 suddenly lost all printers and won't add them back

Addendum. I have a new tab labelled Acrobat and can indeed print to a pdf via that tab. So perhaps this is a driver issue after all?

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer
The very next day I went to open the project and both the original documents and the copied ones were COMPLETELY EMPTY!!!
the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!
Through Microsoft forums I've repeatedly tried the "Recover Text from any File" and "Open and Repair" methods
They've remained completely empty
I don't think I can redo the project correctly in the time it is due! Please any info will help. Thanks

Also, if this helps- I tried to save another Document and MSW says... Read more

Hi,

First, apologies, I'm sure that someone has already asked and answered this question, but I can't find the thread.

Colleague was working on a word document she received through IE. She pressed save, closed document, and then when she tried to retrieve the document later on, it was not in her document folder.

I presume that this is the rather common problem of windows creating super secret hidden temp files to hide your documents on you if you accidentally don't press save as (why they haven't changed this after this many operating systems is really baffling) when you are editing from a document you receive in e-mail.

However, she is working with Vista (I can fix this on XP, but not Vista).

Any ideas how to find the document?
I searched using %TEMP% and no luck.
I also dug into the file system down to appfile/bla bla bla/windows/temporary internet files and discovered that, for some reason, she didn't even have that folder (yes, I set the radio button to show hidden files).

She only did this about 12 hours ago, so I don't think the file should be wiped yet... so what am I doing wrong? Does it use a different file extension?

Vista, Word 2007

Thanks!
 

A:Vista, Word 2007, Lost file, Temp?

With IE open, go to Tools,Internet Options. On the General tab, and the Browsing History area, select the "Settings" button, the select View files. Scroll through the list if you find the file, right click and open or copy and paste to a new location.

any advice

A:Word 2007 lost copy/paste function

Try this it may work, but you need your Microsoft Office 2007 CD.
If you have 2007, click on the MS orb, click on Word Options, Resources, Diagnose.
Or you can go to Add/Remove Programs and double-click on Microsoft Office you should see an option to repair Office.
These will require your Office CD.Click to expand...

Lost scrolling function in Word 2007 with my Logitech mouse. Functions just fine in Internet Explorer, Windows Explorer, Access. etc. Lost one other function in paint shop pro where scroll button worked as zoom in and out. Puchased a new keyboard/mouse combo, but still will not let me scroll in Word 2007 and is driving me nuts as it used to do it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have uninstalled and installed new drivers.

Hi Believer,
Is there a mouse icon in your system tray near the clock? If so, double-click it and there should be an option to use the default Intellimouse settings. Click that button and try it again in Word. Hope that helps.

Hi,

I have been working on a school report for the past few days on Google Docs (so I could access it from home and school). Now that I am done modifying the document at school, I exported the file as a Word document. In my stupidity, I clicked 'Open' instead of 'Save' when downloading the file, so I am assuming it saved in some temporary folder. I have been putting the finishing touches on for about an hour, saving every few minutes. However, I just realized that I never selected a location to save to, so I have most likely been saving to some temporary Word location.

Is there a temporary location where Word saves documents downloaded from the Internet? If so, what can I do to find the location and recover the document?

I am running Windows 7, Internet Explorer 9, and Word 2007 if that helps.

A:Google Docs/Word 2007 Lost File

I find that one of the most useful 'tools' in Windows 7 is the search box at the bottom of the pop-up when you press the 'Start' button.

Press Start, in the box above begin typing the name of your lost file - keeping an eye on the menu offerings above. Hopefully your file will appear, then you can touch it to open it.

I'm going to tell the whole story incase the answer is somewhere lost in one of the steps I took. I'm writing a paper for school and it needs to be on Word 2007. I have two accesses to this type of Microsoft Word. At my boyfriend's house and at school. I started it at my boyfriends house and didn't have my flash drive, so I e-mailed it as an attatchment to my yahoo e-mail. When I was at school, I opened it and worked on it again. I saved it. Later still at school, I opened it, worked on it again and saved it. As I was saving it I realized that the one I had originally opened from my boyfriend's house was the file extention .docx and the file extention my school uses, even though they both are Microsoft Word 2007, was .doc. So I saved it twice just incase one file wouldn't open. When I got to my boyfriends house, I opened the .doc file. It came up and I finished my paper. Throughout working on it, I randomly and continually clicked the "save" button. Not the "save as". When I was finally finished, I went to upload it onto the internet to turn it in like I always do, and I couldn't find it. I of course closed the program before I realized I couldn't find it, so I couldn't try to resave it as something else. I know I saved it more than once. I looked everywhere I can possibly think of!! The recent documents, my documents, everything.

A:Lost But Saved Microsoft Word 2007 Document

It "saved" to a temporary folder. If you've searched the whole drive for the file name and it didn't show up, then it has already been wiped out. When working with e-mail attachments, you need to save it to a known location before making changes to it.

Even the print test page prints with no text.
