Do you want it to install the new font, or just change the font?

To expand on IT_Crowd's comment - which bit are you having a problem with - writing macros, installing a font, or setting a document, or part of it, to use particular font settings?

In response to  IT_Crowd and GrahamSkan, the font has already been installed, and from word I can click on the font field, scroll down and select it and then set the point size.
As I will be switching back and forth between 2 fonts, I thought a macro would be faster and more efficient.  
My problem is writing the macro.  I think the okd versions of Word had a record macro sequence and saving it as a macro.  But in 2007 I do not see it unless I am missing something. thank u.

You need to customize the ribbon and enable the Developer tools, then you will be able to record you macro. Click on the office button and select Options then customize ribbon, on the right you should see Developer and just need to click the box.
