Chapter 32. Creating and Working with VBA Macros > Using Built-In Word Commands

Using Built-In Word Commands

Before you start to create your own macros, you should familiarize yourself with Word’s built-in commands. As you might imagine, Word provides a number of built-in commands (over 1000), and many of them are already associated with toolbar buttons, menu commands, and keyboard shortcuts. For example, the FileClose command is attached to the File menu’s Close command. You can view, run, and associate Word commands with toolbar buttons, menus, and keyboard shortcuts in the same ways you perform these actions with macros you create.

Viewing Existing Word Commands

You use some of the built-in Word commands regularly without realizing it (such as when you click the Print button on the Standard toolbar), but others aren’t assigned to toolbar buttons or menu commands by default.
