no purpose, just learning.  If I store an autoexec macro in module in a certain file and not in the normal template will it not run when that file is opened?  If not, is there even a point to an autoexec macro except for in a template?

In general macros are usually best in templates. There are there to help with the production of documents, so they would only be available to one document.

An AutoExec macro must go in the Normal template, because it is the only one available when Word is starting.
