It sounds as if you have a problem with a template or an add-in. Do you know if you have any? If you aren't sure, you can check in the Templates and Add-ins dialogue (Tools/Templates and Add-ins...)

everything in enabled.   When I run the FileNew Macro, a new document opens, like it's suppose to.  When I go to File New or select the icon for a new document, I get the Error.

Are you saying that you have a known Macro called FileNew that runs OK?

Or do you mean that the Word Command FileNew in the Macros dialogue (accessed via Tools/Macro/Macros) works properly?

The latter would be consistent with a problem macro elsewhere.

Does the Templates and Addins dialogue show anything?

After much to do, it was discovered that there was another macro involved.  We have two FileNew Macros because of DM.  Your solution was correct for the most part and I probably should have indicated that a DM was involved.  Many Thanks.
