    Some macro selections for my toolbars seem to be absent in my Microsoft Word 2003.

    Here's the specific problem - there are TWO instances.

    First, when you right click to get the "Customize" window and then right click any icon on the toolbar, the pop-up menu that comes up has an "Assign Hyperlink" selection at the very bottom - AND THERE IS SUPPOSED TO BE AN "ASSIGN MACRO" selection underneath that, BUT MINE DOESN"T HAVE IT.

    And Second, on the "Command" tab of the "Customize" window, scrolling down to the "Macros" category in the left pane, the "COMMANDS" PANE ON THE RIGHT DOESN'T SHOW ANYTHING.

    Now I wouldn't even know if anything was missing if it weren't for seeing the selections on there before AND seeing the selections in Excel 2003 (I have Office Basic 2003).

    I looked in the Help files and there was a "Macro language support is disabled" topic, so I followed that and "reinstalled" the VBA feature through Control/Panel >Add/Remove, but that didn't do anything - besides, the VBA feature IS AND WAS available in Word anyway.

    I recently reinstalled XP and all my apps, and that's why I've been messing around with the customization of the toolbar in Word.

    This seems like a setting issue unique to Word, not Office (because Excel has it OK).

    I was messing around with the "Tools>Options" settings in Word right before this happened, so maybe I did something there. But I went back over all the changes I made (just a few) and reset everything to the defaults.

    This is not a big issue right now, but if I ever want to assign a macro to a toolbar button, it may be.
