    Phantom macros (Word 2000)

    Hi,
    I have a lot of documents that give macro warning "This document contains macros" even though the document does not contain any macros. I read long ago that if you ever save a macro in a document, this message will persist after the macros are all deleted. Is this likely to be the problem? And If so, is there a simple way to get rid of the message?
    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Judith

    WD2000: Macro Virus Warning Appears When No Macros Exist in File from the MS knowledge base should help.

    Thank you Hans and Tony.
    It works perfectly.
    I also tried the same techniques on Powerpoint presentations that had the same problem. It also worked in PowerPoint.
    Many thanks,

    Hans, your link doesn't work ("pagina niet bereikbaar"), but Tony's does.

    See WD2000: Macro Virus Warning Appears When No Macros Exist in File.

    Note: you'll also receive the macro warning if your document contains ActiveX components such as controls from the Control Toolbox.
