Sorry to bother you with such a trival matter but I am new at this and this  is my first question.   I went to word, tools, macro, visual basic editor, insert userform.  I created a form, named it and saved it and created some buttoms ect.. using some VB and ran it.  I want to attach the document  (the word file)  in a lotus notes data base so it will open and the form will be there .  When I open word and click on the document name a blank document continues to show?  My question is where is my form and how do I save it as a form to be attached somewhere else?  Is it possible?

Aurora...   Great question for the first try...  But I think you will get a better response if you post it in the VB section...  Those guys really know their business..  You might get some responses here too, since many of these XP experts are well versed in VBS, but it may be faster to go there..

If you want to do this, just ask a question in Community Support..  They will be glad to help you move it over..

Check your macro security settings,
Tools-->Macro-->Security
set it to either medium or low. medium will prompt you to run the macro, low will not.

Do you have administrative privillages on your workstation?

Either set the macro security setting or place the code in either AutoNew or AutoOpen modules to show the form. Your form is still  saved with the document but you have to called from some module.

The auto macros in Microsoft Word are:
AutoExec
AutoNew
AutoOpen
AutoClose
AutoExit
