Macro's need events to trigger them. I think you will have terrible results if you try to tie something to the OnClick event. Most macros are setup so that they run when someone presses a key combination or clicks a button.

So, for your needs, I would suggest that you figure out the keystrokes for enabling the highlighter tool and then use that to highlight. That way you will eliminate your need for clicking the mouse. In Word 2007, I believe that ALT, H, I will highlight for you.
