7. Macro Hacks > 61. Intercept Word Commands

Intercept Word Commands

This hack shows you how to change the way Word works with the ominous-sounding technique of command interception.

What happens when you choose Save from the File menu? Obviously, Word saves the current file. But that’s not the whole story. You’ve executed the FileSave command, which tells Word to do the actual work of writing the file to disk on your computer. Likewise, when someone dials your phone number, a computer somewhere inside the phone company directs the call to the phone line in your house. If you move, you can just ask the phone company to send calls to your new house instead. You can even temporarily forward your calls just about anywhere, and the people dialing your number will be none the wiser.
