Hello stefanomarco,

Please take a shot at explaining what you are trying to do, and what (if anything) you have tried so far.

Regards,

stefanomarco,

I see now :)  Generally speaking, macros that worked in Word 2000 should work in Word 2007.  You need
to be careful with anything that manipulated CommandBars, as the Ribbon replaced CommandBars, and one
major exception I am aware of is that the FileSearch object was inexplicably killed off for Office 2007.

You could get your macros into Word 2007 via:
1) Copy/paste to the VBA Editor;
2) Export to *.bas files from Word 2000 and import those *.bas files in W2007; or
3) Simply open the *.doc/*.dot files with code, and save them as *.docm/*.dotm in W2007

Note that the new *.docx and *.dotx do NOT support macros; *.docm/*.dotm do.

Regards,

Patrick
