VBA to detect a Word doc using a macro in normal.dot

Last Modified: 2013-11-27

I have a tool built in Access that scans spreadsheets and Word for macros. Is working OK, except for the case of a Word Doc that has a macro that is stored in normal.dot.

Is their any detectable flag/object (using VBA) that would indicate this?
