Corrupt Autoexec and Macro files

Hello everyone,
We seem to have corrupt Autoexec and macro files in out current database. Is it possible to extract the Autoexec and Macros from the backup DB from 2 weeks ago and apply them to to current database? If yes, what are the steps to accomplish this?
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

1) Delete the suspect macros.
2) Compact & Repair the db.
3) Reopen, then See image ... and browse to the backup db ... then import the items you need

MX's posts presumes this, but just to be sure...
Make sure you have valid backups before you delete the originals...
