How to list or identify macros in office/visio documents?
Posted on 2009-04-10
I hate Microsoft pop-up messages that warn you about problems but offer no information to help you decide what to do. A classic example of this is the Security Warning message that pops up when you open a Microsoft Office document that essentially says "This file contains Macros. Macros may contain Viruses. It is usually safe to disable macros, but if the macros are litgitimate, you might loose functionallity." Your options (buttons) are "Enable Macros" or "Disable Macros". Well, great, there is a button missing here. The one that says "Click here to see a list of active macros in this document" If I could see a list of the macros, I would then know whether to "Enable" or "Disable" them. Thanks Microsoft; I don't recall putting any macros in my document, and I don't know if they are ligitimate or not, and I can't figure out how to list or see them. They're not listed under any of the menu choices. Anyone have a suggestion? I hope the solution isn't something very simple, or I'm really going to feel stupid here; but this typical of Microsoft; error messages that don't include a button to google or search the knowledge base.
