I've searched the Lounge on this topic without luck.
I have a very useful macro that finds asterisks/replaces text in Word 2003 documents. I have migrated it to Word 2007 but it doesn't work unless I run it from Developer, and then it will only run one instance.
Anyone got an answer please?
You have several choices for running macros in Word 2007. You can use the Macros button on the Developer tab, or the keyboard shortcut Alt+F8 to call up the same dialog. You can add a button for the macro to the Quick Access Toolbar (click the drop-down arrow at the end and choose More Commands). You also can assign your own keyboard shortcut (open More Commands and then click the Customize button next to Keyboard shortcuts). Is any of that useful?

Thanks for your response Jeff.
The 'assign keyboard shortcut' did the trick. Now why didn't I think of that. Probably because I am still in denial re Office 2007 :-)
The very useful macro in question is
.Text = "*"
.Replacement.Text = ""
.Forward = True
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
