    Security Patch Problems (Word XP)

    I'm having problems with Word and Office Security patches released on Sept 3 (KB822036 and KB830346).

    I have some typsetting macros that run fine before I load those patches and then afterward causes strange things with the footnote coding. Basically, it is applying the code meant for the footnotes to the text. It it as if it doesn't recognize the command to switch panes.

    I checked my security setting and it is set at "Low". There must be something in the new patch that messes with macros.

    Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

    If you single-step through the macro, can you see whether it is ignoring a command (e.g., to view the Footnote pane), or perhaps has changed the way it switches among views so that the command no longer works in the new context? I can't think of any other way to narrow down what might be going wrong.
