Microsoft Word 2003 macro print

Q: Microsoft Word 2003 macro print


I currently have about 30,000 lines of macros. Occasionally the people I work for want an updated list of all the macros in that file (most are user specific) so that they know what macros they have and if then need a different one or edit a current one.

What have been looking for is a way to print the names of the macros only, and not the entire marco file/code.

the first macro looks something like this..

Sub hinj()
' hinj Macro
' Dr. H's Corticosteroid Injection
Selection.TypeText Text:= _
Selection.TypeText Text:= _
"The patient's * was injected with."
end sub

(cut short for brevity)

then the next macro, and so on and so forth.

What i have been looking for is a way to print a list of the macros but not the macro themselves.

IE.. I wold like it to print out...

hinj Macro
Dr. H's Corticosteroid Injection

Dr. H's Hyalgan Macro

Dr. H's Supartz Macro.

so on and so forth with all 375 macros printed.

Is there a way to do this? I would be most appreciative for any clue as to how to do this.

Whenever I try to open a saved Word document (or even a PowerPoint), the file doesn't open and I get the following message:

"The file ____ is not available.
You may be encountering this message because an anti-virus program is not allowing the file to open. This can be caused by one of two conditions. Either the anti-virus program needs to be updated (due to a compability problem with this application) or there is a virus in the file but the anti-virus program cannot properly remove or process the virus it has found....etc."

Then when I close the document, I get the following message:
"The file Normal already exists. Do you want to replace the existing file?"

I've tried deleting the file. I've restarted my computer, deleted "" through my computer's search engine, and then opening word. I've tried renaming the file to "normal.old", and followed the instructions after that like I found on a website.
Also, I went to Tools > Macro > Macros and gone to the "Macros in" list, clicked "All active templates and documents", but there weren't any macros listed there.

I tried using the Macro Organizer, and there weren't any macros listed there either.

Many websites suggested that I open the file through MS word and then hold shift before opening it. When I try to open a file, it just says that it isn't available.

Oh, and I'm running on Windows Vista.

I have a large file that I print many times and there are some pages included in the list that are not needed and I throw away every time.

Other than print twice, I'm sure there is a macro that can be programmed to skip those pages, or maybe a macro to link the two print ranges.

Can anyone get me started?

Hi. Operating system is windows xp. Using word 2003. Question:I am attempting to open a document (that has been unzipped with winzip) that has a macro (I assume) that was created by another person. I can open the document, but the macro won't work in it. I get a message that asks me to activate or not activate macros. For example, I am opening a document created by someone else so I can type a clinic note for a patient. When the document opens, the top has a category that says Clinic/hospital =. After the equal it should say the name of the clinic. All I see is {document property/company name/*mergeformat} . I can see the actual information if I click on print preview or if I actually print out the document, but I want to be able to see it on my screen. I have clicked on view normal, print layout, and reading layout, but that doesn't help. Any suggestions. I am thinking it is a setting when word was configured, but its making me crazy...Thanks for the help...

It sounds like your security settings in Word may be set to HIGH, go to the TOOLS menu and select Macro>Security. make sure Medium or LOW is selected.

Medium will ask you to ENABLE macros whenever a book with macro's is opened and LOW will not ask you. High will Prevent them from working.

However, we can not put it on the 6 pc's we have in "All Users" "Desktops" and have it work properly because it comes up that the Macros have been disabled.

I am trying to write a macro for MS Word 2003 to add a new row to an existing table. This table contains a column row (each column contains a heading) and one row below it. This row contains drop down menus for three of the columns in the row.

I would like a button on word. When this button is pressed, it adds another row below the existing row with the same drop down menu's appearing for the same columns. I would also like a button for formatting the text. When this button is pressed, it formats the text in the table rows to Arial 10 (excludes the columns with the drop down menu's) Anyway this can be done besides recording the macro which doesn't produce the desirable result?

I have created in Microsoft Word 2003 on an XP OS some lengthy documents. I created them using a view setting of 150%.

I sent them to my employer, who is using Windows 98 and Microsoft Word 97. My boss opened them with his system and they displayed on the screen at a view of 200%. He wants me to send him Word documents that he can open from the CD-R that I send that will automatically display at 100% view on the screen so that he does not have to set the view for each document as it displays.

So what is the answer.

Is there a way that I can save my created documents so that when my boss gets them on a CD-R that they will open on his system at a view setting of 100%.

Is there also a way that his system can be set to default to 100% in reading from the CD-R.

My boss does not want to copy the documents to the system hard disk from my sent CD-R, preferring to read and copy directly from the CD-R that I send, so that the original documents will not accidentally be changed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know the easiest way of adding a macro button to a Word document, which will insert a specific word or line of text when clicked?

I have a table in Word 2003, which I need to update with information regularly. The final column just has the word(s) "Activity Complete" or "Work Ongoing" in each cell, but it's annoying having to type this every time, or copy and paste it. Ideally, I would like a button for each, which I can just click and the text will be inserted wherever my cursor is.

I am presuming some sort of VB code is required, as I've tried to set up a macro using the record procedure but it didn't work.

Can anyone help me with this? I don't really have any experience of writing VB code so I don't know where to start!

Thanks in advance!

I am hoping someone can help me here - I am trying to create a macro that prints Current Page based on specific text. I found script from 3 years ago (on this forum) that works nearly perfectly for us with only minor formatting adjustments. I'll post that below, but first want to explain the one change I am trying to make (you'll see I know little about Macros...)

The script below searches in text boxes, I need it to just search the document, not confined to text boxes. We have a series of letters that are generated automatically and then later sent to clients. These are generated in massive numbers, and we only print out the ones that come from our locations (7 in total). Right now we have to eyeball to see which ones we will print, but I know we can build a macro that will do it.

Here is the script I am basing working off of, which I called sort:

(The first part just sets margins to narrow, please ignore, it's the second part where I want to break away from the Text Box requirement and just look at the text within the document, and if it matches, print that page. I appreciate any help with this

There is a closed forum (Business applications archives)

Which almost has the solution to my problem except that the problem solved was making a macro run just before saving and I want to make a macro run just before printing.

But I cannot see what else to change... I thought Rollin_Again could probably help as he solved the original problem. His "before saving" example works fine for me.

Thanks for any help possible and sorry if this message is not in the right place.

Was wondering if anyone could offer a bit of help on this one - it's been a while since I've worked on macros and I'm struggling to find anything close to this online.

I've got a whole bunch of documents that contain text strings, such as ~[name], ~[gender] etc. These letters are being migrated to a new system that uses MS Word mail merge and as such, I need to convert these from just text place holders into Mail Merge fields. Macroing turning the document into a MM is easy, but it's the replacement I'm having an issue with. They map across to different things so I appreciate I'd have to set what each one would map to, but I'm having trouble since Find and Replace won't insert mail merge fields.

So for instance, I might want to replace all instances of ~[gender] in document with a proper mailmege field of <<sex>>, and then repeat that for 30 or 40 other fields in the letters.

I appreciate this is a bit of an ask, but if anyone has a sec I'd really appreciate it

I am looking to prepare a report comprised of docuemnts sent to various units of the business. All units were instructed to use 'Track Changes' in Word, and I would now like create a Macro that will only reject changes the correspond to formatting (ex. font size, spacing, etc.).

I have a macro that was created previously for similar documents, but was not properly tested on documents that had a large number of changes. Now running the macro with documents completely freezes the file and does not execute as desired. Here is the macro currently being used:

Sub FmtChanges()
Dim revFmtRev As Revision
For Each revFmtRev In ActiveDocument.Revisions
If revFmtRev.FormatDescription <> "" Then
End If
End Sub

Since there are many documents and they are all quite long (some exceed 200 pages), it would save a ton of time to use a macro such as this to complete the task.

Thanks a lot for any help you can provide!

We have recently created a standard complany letter with macros to provide list boxes for our names, job titles etc. We have got the standard company address etc. locked to prevent them from being changed by users and to allow us to tab through the document to the list boxes and editable areas.

The problem is that we can't seem to be able to run a spell check on the document whilst it is locked. Is this unavoidable or is there some way around it? The person who created the document is new to macros so she has not guaranteed that she hasn't done something wrong when creating it.

I recorded a Word 2003 macro to do the following:

1) Locate the next graphic (which is formatted "inline") in a document
2) Navigate to some text adjacent to the graphic
3) Cut the text to the clipboard
4) Insert a caption pasting the clipboard contents to become the text of the caption

The macro runs correctly except that it fails to record the pasting of text in step 4. The first time it runs the clipboard contains the correct text (which for the example used in this post is $$Image A$$) and that is pasted into the insert caption dialog box correctly. But when the macro runs the second time, with the cursor between the first and second graphics, although it places the second text block in the clipboard, the text from the first caption is incorrectly used in the second caption. In subsequent runs of the macro all captions are set with the incorrect $$Image A$$ text. The clipboard has the correct text (verified by pasting elsewhere) which fails to get pasted into the caption dialog box.

Although I am a VBA novice, I can see from the last line of the macro in the VBA Editor that the Title field has recorded the first caption rather than a paste command. Here's that last line:

Selection.InsertCaption Label:="Figure", TitleAutoText:="", Title:= _

First, welcome to the forum!!!

The best way for one of the Excel gurus to work on your problem would be to post your file, after you have removed any confidential data (make a copy and do the editing in it). If it is too large, zip it first (and zip is preferred to rar).
If you are unable to post the file (there seems to be a problem at times with people who don't have very many posts being able to attach files) just send me an email via my profile (include the URL link to this thread). I will respond to you and then you can send it to me, after which I will post it for you.

Hello Everyone-

I am relatively new to the world of Visual Basics but understand the concept. I am trying to create a document in Word 2007 that will be used in Word 2003. The document resembles an online blog format. (Copy Attached)

The user makes a text entry in a designated text box, the text is then copied to the second page where the date, time and username are automatically entered. The most current entry is always entered on top.

My two questions are:

Question 1: How do I assign a macro named "Comments" to a command button named "EnterComments" through VBA?

Question 2: How would I create a dialog box that would appear during the above macro? I would like it to state "Please enter your first and last name" and have a place to make the entry within the same dialog box? (Forced formatting is not necessary) The point I would like this to happen would be at the following line: Selection.TypeText Text:=" NAME"
as seen below.

Please note thread name inaccurate. Problem is in Office 2003 and Firefox.

Hi there

I am an IT professional and expert but I have to admit I'm stumped with this problem.

I cannot print to my Xerox Phaser 6280DN PS using Word 2003, Excel 2003, Firefox. Other packages do print, including Wordpad and Acrobat. The OS is Windows 7 64bit, the printer driver is from Microsoft's 'get a driver for W7 64' page.

The printer is connected to my LAN and no other computer on the LAN has a problem. Previous to the install (fresh) of Windows 7 64bit, Windows XP had no problems printing from anything.

Actually, I can't get Word to print on any of the print-like devices listed, including the MS XPS Document writer and Cute PDF writer.

I've googled til I'm blue in the face for months and months.

I do suspect this is a security issue and something to do with user rights, although my account has admin rights.

Please, someone, save me from the misery of converting everything to rtf and printing through wordpad!



A:Can't print. Word 2003 only.

HI. We have having issues with Xerox copiers also. It seems that with windows 7 the print driver must be certified otherwaise you get prompted for admin rights. Under server 2008 there is a GPO which is called point and print that is meant to take away the prompting but I couldn't get it to work [and judging by the google responses, nobody else could] I have noticed that some of the Xerox drivers we have tried are certified but the certificate has expired which makes me wonder if Xerox are hacking certified drivers about.

I have a contract (I'm using MS Word 2010 but have a 2003 document) that I need to extract the 'defined terms' from and write to another file. That is to say, the words that are capitalised that are not the first word of a sentence. The entire document needs to be searched.

Sometimes a defined term has more than one word, for example, "Service Measures". In this instance I would ideally like "Service Measures" to be found rather than two results: "Service" and "Measures".

I have found the following wildcard search that finds words that begin with capitals that are not at the start of a sentence however this also returns the two preceding characters of the word:

[!.\!\?] <[A-Z][A-z0-9]{1,}>

However I am not sure how to:
a) export the return of the search to another document (to generate and build a list of defined terms)
b) delete the two preceding characters to just leave the capitalised words
c) run the macro for the entire document
d) edit the macro to group immediately subsequent words together (eg the "Service Measure" example above)

Any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated!

I used to have Works and I used it to print envelopes. Now I have Office Word 2003 and cannot get an envelope to print.

I type in my return address, for envelopes where I just want a return address, and I pick the picture that shows the envelope with the front down and the flap pointing to the right. That's how I put my envelope in the printer.

Then I click Print and the envelope goes about halfway in and stops. I click on the X on my HP printer to make it come out and it does, blank.

How can I get an envelope printed in MS Office Word 2003?

A couple of machines in the office have recently upgraded to word 2003 and the printing macros for these machines are working intermittently. I have looked through the code but canít see anything obvious, and I havenít had much experience with word 2003.

I am trying to add a few screen shots for a document.
I am having problems utilizing the Print Screen function and pasting it into a new Word document. As I press Ctrl-V nothing appears to be pasted until I click the Enter button and the image I pasted finally appears. In the document, if i click on this invisible image, I see the borders of the print screen image highlighted, but still not viewable.

I haven't touched the Tools - Options setting, default settings should be selected. I passed the document on to a co-worker to see if she could see it and with luck, she could see the screen shot I pasted. She was also able to perform the same functions I am having problems I guess it' has to be something with my settings?...

More than likely your memory is your issue. You do not have much and if you are rendering lots of images it eats up your computers memory. I have seen this also happen with low-end video cards as well. It has issues rendering or displaying them. Typically if you minimize and maximize you can then see the image. I have not tried the hit enter afterwards though.

I have created a word document that includes a table that spans close to 10 pages. When going to print, the only thing that prints is the outline of the table, with no text inside. I have been using this identical table in other documents and it has printed fine before.

Now noting this today, I went back to previously saved documents that include the same table, and now those documents will only print the table outlines as well, when they have definitely printed fine with the text before.

I have checked the following:
-black ink is not empty
-hidden font is not checked
-changed color of font, still no font printed
-made a new document with just text, that printed fine

Below is my log.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to solve this problem.

Hey all. I'm running Word 2003 on XP Pro, and I have a real throat-slasher of a Microsoft Word problem on my hands that I have posted far and wide on many forums, to no avail.

I have a picture that I am trying to post as a background image to a Word document. To do this, I go Format - Background - Fill Effects - Picture - Select Picture, then I choose the picture. The picture shows up, and when I view the file in Print View at 100% Zoom, it is at the perfect scale to my liking. But when I print the document, the background image is shrunk to a fraction of its original size and tiled in the background, behind the document text.

I have posted this on several different forums already, and the only answer I have received so far was from Garfield-n-Odie, who suggested the following:

"In Word, try turning off background printing in Tools | Options | Print. In Windows, try turning off print spooling and advanced text services in Start | Control Panel | Printers | right-click on your printer Properties."

"Check the setting of the "Print body text before header/footer" option on the Compatibility tab of Tools | Options. If the box is checked, clear it and vice versa and see if that helps."

"If you can you print to a different printer, try that."

I've tried these all, on a couple of different computers. No dice. Any ideas? I'm really at the end of my rope. Thanks a million in advance.

With Word, I have words that i use that are correct, but it keeps underlining them in red and i know you can add the words into its dictionary so that this doesn't happen for those words anymore.

The easiest way I found was to run spell check and when the pop up dialog box appears on words not in Word's dictionary( red squigglies) , there is an option to ignore, change, etc., or "add to dictionary". It is there that I make a decision whether to add or not, and I add it to the general dictionary. Check the HELP to determine how to set up a *special* dictionary, if that is what you want to do, just for these words.

Hum.. You want to insert a mathematical expression in your text? Or do you want Word to calculate a quare root for you?

In case of the former, you have to install an Office component called Equation Editor.
If you have that, then you can do Insert->Object->Create New->Microsoft Equation

Otherwise, you can always draw the formula in Paint and then copy-paste to Word

Hello everyone,I usually use Microsoft Word XP professional (on my laptop) to do my paper work and when I finish everything I copy my files to my desktop computer (bigger screen) so I can review the paper for the last time and print it. My problem occurred when my printer started printing something completely different from the page that appeared on my screen. It's the same page but the first line would start for example at 2 cm from the top of the page, the footnotes would be in different order like this: 1, 4, 2 , 5, 3. I realized that the Print layout view on Microsoft Word 2007 is showing something while the Full screen reading is showing something completely different. It's what I see in the full screen reading that gets printed!I can off course uninstall office 2007 and install another version but I hate to leave this problem unsolved.

I have Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2003. I am trying to print a greeting card for the first time. The card size unfolded is 7 1/2 by 11. Once folded it wll be 71/2 by 5 1/2. When I choose print, I get the message "The margins of section 1 are outside the printable area of the page". I don't understand what section 1 is. I've moved the margins and I still get the same error.

Thank you for your help,

I am trying to print a flyer I made in Word 2003. I created it with borders. When I try to print it, the bottom border will not print. I am using Vista Ultimate. Can anyone help me with this? I've tried adjusting the bottom margins but still no luck. It prints just fine without a border, but with borders, the bottom one will not print. Any advice would be welcomed. Thank you.

I can fax directly from fax and scan OK. But when I try to fax from microsoft word 2003 it doesn't work. When I get into the fax wizard using "send to recipient using fax modem" it skips over where I put recipient, cover sheet and sender in so I can't send the fax.
When I try going thru printer, it inserts my doc in attachments and is unreadable. THANKS

Hi, I've been having this problem with MS Word 2003 for a little bit.

What happens is, I open the application, and the Word box pops up like it's about to open like it should, but then it takes forever to open, maybe over 10 minutes or so, unless I just end the process like I usually do since it takes so long.

The only thing I've noticed different about anything when I open it is, Navw32.exe starts running, and if i end that, an alert window opens that says "The document C:\Documents and Settings\David Solis\Application Data\Microsoft\Normal\ is still infected. Do you want to delete this file?". I'll click no, and Word opens.

Any idea what any of this is, why it's doing it, and how to stop it? Thanks!

do a search on your system for and when you find it, rename it to normal.old

try to open Word

if it works, and you have no macros or personal changes made to your, then simply delete normal.old

I have never had a problem with Microsoft Word until now. I can use Word fine on my computer. In the past week or so, however, when I send Microsoft Word documents to people, sometimes they say they can open them and sometimes they say they can’t open them. It depends on the person.On some of my e-mail clients (I have multiple e-mail accounts), I can open the files I send myself (i.e. I will send an e-mail to my multiple e-mail accounts and I will attach Word documents to that e-mail. On some clients I can open the files I send myself, and others I can’t...I did a check disk /r (checkdisk repair) on March 9 and it fixed the problem. I could send Word documents and everyone could download them and I could send Word documents to myself and download them via AOL Mail, Yahoo, and everything. And then the problem came back again.When I click on the file in the mail client that doesn’t read the documents correctly, the attachment comes up as saying that the mail client interprets the .doc file as being related to Notepad (specifically listing Notepad as the program it wants to open the file in), not Word. Then when I try to open it (either straight from the e-mail or after downloading the file back to my hard drive), it tries to open in word and gives me the converter message.When it was working for a little while on March 9, the way I knew a Word document would work correctly even before trying to open a file is that Mail would list it as being a Word doc...

A:Microsoft Word 2003 nightmare

I haven't read nor absorbed your entire message.
There's one thing that comes to mind immediately - your clients may have slightly different Word. If they have 2007, you need to send them the 2007 version or have them open as previous version (if possible).

Long ago there was an office update which added some sort of converter to my Office2003. Perhaps if you save as some other than 2003 .doc it would work. That update permitted me to open a document or two someone sent me.

Edited: what is one supposed to do with that megaupload site? All I see to pay lots of UK currency. I'm willing to try to open your
files in my Office2003 but not under those conditions.

I use WORD 2003 and I cant get a verticle ruler on the left

A:Solved: Microsoft WORD 2003 help

Welcome to TSG.

Are you in print layout view? That's the only view that will display the ruler in Word 2003. If so, go to Tools/Options and select the View tab. Under Print and Web Layout options, check the Vertical ruler box. Hope that helps.

In the old microsoft word, when you had more than one document open, they would all use the same window, and minimize within itself. However I now have 2003 and when I open a new document, they are completly seperate windows and use two buttons on the task bar. I liked having all my documents open in the same program that i can control with the x in the corner. This is hard to explain so i Hope you know what i am talking about. I know it is possible to change this setting because ive used antoher computer where it has done this. I just can not find it in the options or anywhere I have looked. Any help would be appriciated. Even maybe a term i could use to look for it. THank you

A:Microsoft word 2003 question

In Word 2002 (XP version) you can go to Tools > Options, click on the View tab and clear the checkbox labeled "Windows in Taskbar". According to the Word Help, this will force all Word document windows to be represented by a single button on the taskbar. Word 2003 should be similar.

I'm trying to print a document from Microsoft Word 2003 to a network printer.
When I select print I get an error message with the following text.
A microsoft word error 7, "The RPC server is unavailable" has occurred. When
I close the error box I get another error that immediately follows.
A microsoft word error 10, "There is a printer error" has occurred.
Have tried to troubleshoot the problem by re-installing the printer and this
does not help. Have even re-installed Microsoft Office 2003 and this has not
stopped the problem either. I have 12 workstations on a Windows 2003 server
and only 3 of my workstations are having this problem. All workstations are
running Windows XP professional sp2 and print just fine from all of my other server
applications. I have scanned all systems for malware and they are all clean.
I don't know what else to try and hope someone has seen this problem and may
have solution.

A:Solved: A microsoft word error 7 message occurs when users try to print

It could be caused by the Print Spooler service being stopped - that would explain the second error, which is an out-of-memory error. If that fails, make sure you have the latest printer driver - and the one you have may be corrupt.
If all this fails, try installing the printer again, but use the IP address of it, rather than having Windows auto-search for it. Another meaning of this error is that the PCs are unable to recognize one another.

I was using Word normally only a few hours before this started.

Word types random sentances by itself. It also prints multiple pages, opens new windows and changes the page set up all by itself.

I brand a file onto the computer from my USB device just before this.

Anyone got any idea what the problem is and how i can fix it.

I have already uninstalled and reinstalled the program, but the problem remains.

I've been using word 2003 in windows 7 for a couple years now and it always worked fine. Recently, I have been experiencing this issue where if I click on "save as" to save the file and then double click the C drive it just sits there and freezes for a couple minutes (and I get the "not responding" box with everything whited out). I tried to uninstall and reinstall microsoft office 2003 and the problem is still there. I don't know why it's doing that when I click on the C drive because I can save the file to the desktop or under documents right away without any freezing and then move the file -- but this is a hassle. How can I fix this problem?

Please help!

I am trying to create a letter template that has drop downs in it so that a user can choose which paragraph to put in the letter.

I can create one by using the Drop down form field but it will only let me put a certain amount of text in there.

Is there a way I can do this?

I dont want to do auto texts just the drop down.

Any help would be really really appreciated.

Thanks very much.
