Word Makro

I have created a word document with form protected text boxes and assigned a makro with a keyboard shortcut that unprotects and reprotects the sheet after it goes to the end of the document, and I enters a specified auto text.  However, the makro doesn't produce an outcome  (nothing changes) with some random text to be insterted.

So here my questions:

How do I assign the  autotext "abc" instead of the random text?
And what, if anything is wrong with the makro, since it doesn’t work? one reason I could come up with might be that a macbook does not have an EndKey. Does that matter?

So this is the current Makro:

Sub Macro3()
Set aDoc = ActiveDocument
If aDoc.ProtectionType <> wdNoProtection Then
 aDoc.Unprotect
    Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdStory
Set aDoc = ActiveDocument
If aDoc.ProtectionType <> wdNoProtection Then
 aDoc.Unprotect
 Selection.InsertBefore "department six"
 aDoc.Protect Type:=wdAllowOnlyRevisions, Password:=strPassword
End If
End Sub

thanks.

It the document is not protected then the code will do nothing

If it is protected, you remove the protection, then you test it again. That test will be false and so nothing will be done.

Try this instead:
Sub Macro3a()
    Dim aDoc As Document
    Dim strPassword As String
    
    strPassword = "Pass"
    Set aDoc = ActiveDocument
    If aDoc.ProtectionType <> wdNoProtection Then
        aDoc.Unprotect strPassword
    End If
    aDoc.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range.Text = "department six"
    aDoc.Protect Type:=wdAllowOnlyFormFields, Password:=strPassword
 End Sub
