Join Mariann Siegert for an in-depth discussion in this video Saving macro-enabled documents and templates, part of Building Blocks and Macros in Word.
Have you ever thought about where a macro lives?…It has to be stored somewhere, right?…Well, let's take a look at how Word stores and saves their macros.…Open up a new blank document and then click on the Record Macro button down at…the bottom on the status bar.…It opens up the Record Macro dialog box.…You may have noticed when we created our first macro that the dialog box not…only asked for name and description, but it also asked where we wanted to store the macro.…
Just as we saw with our building blocks and how they must be stored within a…template, macros have to be stored in a special kind of document or template.…Notice that the default here is to save to the Normal template.…Your other choice is to store within the open document or template.…We'll select the open document that we're in, Document1.…Click OK to begin recording.…Just the word test in your document and we will just stop recording.…
We'll just want to see how this works.…So go ahead and stop recording by clicking on the Macro button again and we stop recording.…
