Bypassing macros on startup

I was under the impression that holding down the Shift key whilst loading a Word document containing a startup macro - will bypass the Macro.  However, I have a client that has Office 2010, who says that the Shift key bypass function doesn't work (the macro still runs).

Is this correct?

You can run winword /m to start word with no macros. If you need to do this on a regular basis, you can put a shortcut to it on the desktop.
