Writing Macros in word

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
To make a long story short I need a macro for Word that can basically spider through all my existing word documents to make a certain change with how Word prints using my printer. I got the macro made to make the necessary change for the printer but don't know how to apply that to all my existing word documents. Simply changing the normal.dot file doesn't work and trying AutoExec or AutoOpen doesn't work either. If someone could point me in the right direction that would be great.

I don't know how you're trying to run the macro. Do you import the vb code then run the macro?

Yes, I'm recording the macro and then running it.

Frankly, I wasn't sure if this was possible but came across a solution to a problem I'm having and the fix was creating a macro to spider through all existing word documents and make the necessary changes on them. I'm just not sure on how you do that.
