Won't let me use the macros.  Word says:

 

Macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of your macro security settings.

HELP! Thanks in advance!

Hi David,

David Taylor Jr:
Macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of your macro security settings.

two possibilities come to mind:

  1. You didn't click on the Enable in the yellow bar when you opened the macro file.
    [this is not the usual way to use the macros. We don't usually open the macro template file itself].
  2. Or you have a document (docx) which you opened that was not made with the macro file as a template. In this case you can enable the macro for your docx by:

    • Click on File in the menu, then click on Options in the drop down menu (close to the bottom)
    • When the options window opens, click on Customize Ribbon
    • Then on the right side click to check Developer.


    • Now in Word click on the Developer tab
    • Then in it's ribbon click on Document Template button
    • Then in the window that pops up click on Add and locate your macro file
      (from here on out Word should remember the location)
    • Click to check the macro file.
    • Now click on OK button.
      (the macros will now work in your docx. Word has us do this because we did not create the docx using the template.)

Steve,

Thanks for the reply, I had tried both of those but neither have worked.  Any thoughts?

Reviving this Thread

Steve,

  I just migrated to Word 2013 working with Win8. Have your macros been tested on this platform?

Not that i am aware of. i will be very interested to hear you results!
i would be surprised if the macros did not work in Word 2013. But i have no idea what Win8 will do, but since all the macros work inside of Word then Win8 should be inconsequential.

Well... I tried to install them this morning on Word 2013... You have to turn on the "developer" tab to see macros at all in 2013. I can see (and run) the macros there... What I did was to add the macros manually directly to a custom tab group through "customize the ribbon;" They seem to work fine from there. It took a bit of work and fooling around to get them to work because the macro interface is so different betweeen 2010 and 2013.

Hi Steve,

Will this macro work with L5? Also, will it work with Mac Word 2011?

Thanks

Hi Ed,

Ed B:
Will this macro work with L5?

Yes it will, since the macro works inside of Microsoft Word and you will use the Word file with L5. So L5 doesn't care about the macro. The macro does all its work inside of Word.

Ed B:
Also, will it work with Mac Word 2011?

I don't have a Mac and therefore don't have Mac Word. But early on a user got the actual macros to work inside of Mac Word 2010 (see his posts Here and here). He never replied to let us know if he found a way for the GUI (graphical user interface) for the ribbon to work in Mac Word. But i suspect that you could add multiple commands for the set of macros to the 'Quick Access Toolbar' if the ribbon GUI doesn't work.

Also i would strongly suggest that you download the macros from this post to get the latest ones which also support Sermon Tables macros. Please pay attention to the instruction which are included inside the ZIP and video tutorial.

Has anyone tried this with Word 2011 on Mac? If so, can you give a simple how to?

Thanks

I had read about this a long time ago and finally implemented it, which is fantastic.

One question though - I have a template I use for writing my messages with some specific styles and page formatting.  Is it possible to copy the macros into that template so they are automatically there when I start writing my messages based off that existing style/layout template?

i think you can do this by editing your Template (as shown below)

1. Open Word and edit the template that you want the PB macros to work with

2. Select the Developer's Tab
               (if you don't see the Developer's tab, you will need to edit the ribbon)

                  

            a. right-click on a blank area of the Ribbon

            b. in the popup, click on Customize the Ribbon...

            c. on the right side of the customize window, click to check Developer and then click OK.

3. Click on Document Template icon (this opens a window as shown below the arrow in first image)

4. Locate the PB Macros item and check it, then click OK. (if you don't see it in the list use the Add button on the right)

You will need to Save and exit your editing session for the Template. Then when you open a new Word doc and use your template, i think it should work and include the PB macros.

Do these work in Office 2013?

By Office 2013, i guess you imply Word 2013 (the macros were written for Word docx's as that is what PBs requires)

The macros definitely should work, they are written in VBA

And i am guessing that the UI-ribbon probably works similar in Word 2013, so it should work too.
(even if the UI-Ribbon didn't work, you could attach toolbar commands to each macro)

Somewhere in this very long thread are instructions (they were attached as a PDF)

I have tested them, and they work exactly as in Word 2010.

I'm able to see the title of the template that I saved as instructed but "run" is grey and there are no macros showing in the dialog list

Can any one who has this running in Word 2013 give me any pointers? I basically bought Word so I could use Macros. Previously I just used openoffice and libreoffice, so I would really love to get this working.  Thanks in advance!
