    Word Overriding Macros in Add-In (Word 2K/XP)

    I built a COM Add-In for Word but no events can be intercepted with the overriding macros. These macros works fine when they are in a template. I cannot figure out any reason for this.

    Can the overriding macros be used in this way?

    Can you be a tad more specific? Which events are you trying to trap, and how?

    unfortunately, there is no way to pass overridable word commands (FilePrint, FileSaveAs, ...) to a com add-in, without using a template. this follows logivally from the fact that a com addin is available to all office applications, but the word command overridability is a specific word solution.

    Thanks for the clarification. I haven't looked into COM add-ins, so they're unfamiliar territory for me.

    That makes sense for the problem.
    Thanks
