Every time I use WORD I get a dialogue box saying something about macros right after the app has been opened. If this help on my system i have Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional. Is this something that can be undone by changing some preference/configuration setting with either or both programs? Iv'e included a Screen caputre of "Error Message". Thank in advance

Hiya

PDFMaker is a VBA macro for MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Since it is a macro, it has the potential to clash with other macros you may have installed.

Try the following steps:

1. Go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\Startup


2. You should see PDFMaker.dot here. If you see any other files, move them out of the folder.

3. Go to %UserProfile%\Application data\Microsoft\Word\Startup. This folder should be empty.

4. Locate your NORMAL.DOT file and rename it. Call it NORMAL.OLD

5. Launch MS Word.

If Word opens without a compile error, one or more of the templates you removed is conflicting with PDFMaker. Or, there was a macro in your NORMAL.DOT template that was conflicting (Word automatically creates NORMAL.DOT if it is missing).

I copy/pasted it, in case you cannot view the page. Also, that was for a confict with the file. You could remove the PDFMaker.dot out of there, and leave the rest in, if you don't use them.

Also, what do you have in that folder?
