Running Macros

Macros can be stored in a document or a template, so if someone is sharing macros, you’ll get them through one of these files. If you are on a network, templates can be stored in a specific folder on the network. Standalone systems also have a template folder where you can save the template files. The template locations are specified in the Options dialog box. Choose Tools, Options and then click the File Locations tab. You will see locations for the user templates and workgroup templates. The workgroup templates folder is generally used as a method for gaining access to macros stored on a network. Your network administrator will be able to give you the location of the folder.

Before you run a macro, be sure that everything is in place first. If you are running a macro to add page numbers to a document, for example, you need to open the document first. Likewise, if the macro acts on selected text, select the text before you run the macro. Finally, if the macro creates a new document, you should start in a blank document.
