    Macros Enabled Problem (Word 2003)

    I have a document with 3 macros. When I email the file (name.doc) to someone they don't see the macros nor does it ask them to enable/disable macros upon opening the file. Although i don't get the message on my machine, I can see the macro buttons on the toolbar. Any suggestions?

    Do they have macro security set to High? If so, macros will be disabled without warning. They should set it to Medium (in Tools | Macro | Macro Security...)

    Are you sure that the Macros are in the document and not in an attached template, or in your Normal.Dot.

    Great point. If it is located in the Normal how can i move it to the document?

    Select Tools | Templates and Add-Ins...
    Click Organizer...
    This will open a dialog that lets you copy/move items such as code modules and custom toolbars between documents and templates. It won't transfer individual toolbar buttons, though, you'll have to re-create them in the document (make sure that the document is selected in the Save Changes In dropdown).

    Re: Macros Enabled Problem (Word 2003)

    This worked. I moved the code under Project section of the VB code. Now when I open the file I get the enable macros dialog. This is progress but now when I make a change to the document and close it I get the following error: Changes have been made that affect the global template, Normal.dot. Do you want to save those changes? Should I remove the normal.dot file. Why is this files tied to my code? Can this be eliminated? Thank you!

    Are you sure that your code is the document, and not in Normal.dot now?

    I don't think you should remove Normal.dot, but we'd need to know more about the code to give a better reply.
