Got a lot of macros in my

normal.dotm

Word template.

When I send a document along created with it...do all my macros go along with it, too?

Many thanks,

OT

Hi Oaktrees


You can copy the macros form Normal.dotm


Please refer this link how to save and restore macros in office.

Macros stay in your Normal.dotm template. Documents created from Normal.dotm do not contain macros, and if you save them as ..docx files, they cannot contain macros.

The only way a macro can go out with a document is if you save it as .docm format (or .dotm if you're creating a new template), then use the Organizer to move move macros into it.
