Recently I reformatted a Windows XP SP3 computer for a client.     He never advised me he used macros in his Word 2007 install and said that he hadn't kept anything of importance on the C: Drive.    I did however copy his PST file for OUTLOOK and also his my documents folder just in case.

Today he called saying he didn't have his macros, even though it is not my fault I would like to help him out.  He says his macro were on a network drive.  I am not familiar with how to import the macros from the network drive back into the New Word 2007 installation.
Can anyone tell me if this is possible?

Word macros are kept in templates. If they are for general use, they will be in a global template, probably the Normal template. It may be that the client had change the option for the User templates location to point to a network folder. If that is the case, you would only have to change the option in the new Word installation and they will be back as before.

There is also a Workgroup templates location option, which is intended for shared templates, and hence not suitable for the Normal template,

If you do want move macro elements between documents or templates, you can use the Organizer, called from a button on the Templates and Add-ins dialogue (Developer tab).
