    We have long used AutoExit to fire a bit of code as Word unloads Startup templates and exits. Only one Startup template has an AutoExit macro, and it no longer fires. I can run it manually without...

    Noted. But it does not appear when I right-click the Word icon on the Start menu. In any case, that is not the point. I'm asking what the option does... what is the advantage, if there is one?

    Thank you. I'm wondering if "123" should have been "128", which would make sense: "0" OR "128" or "64" OR "128". (Similarly, "0010" OR "0100".)

    Is this what you are suggesting?
