    Macro to remove 'automatically update' in styles (Word 2000)

    Some time ago WOW included a macro to search all styles in a Word document and "untick" the automatically update tick box. Can anyone provide me with a copy of the VBA?

    I don't remember seeing it, but surely it can't be much more than something along the lines of:

    Sub noUpdateStyles()
    Dim aStyle as Style
    For Each aStyle in ActiveDocument.Styles
    If aStyle.Type = wdStyleTypeParagraph Then
    aStyle.AutomaticallyUpdate = False
    End If
    Next aStyle
    End Sub

    ...which seems to work for me. Interesting to see what the experts reckon (I'm just an enthusiastic amateur!)
