Cannot create macro in MS Word - just upgraded to Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just upgraded to Windows10 and installed MS Office 2007 (sorry old version I know)

    I am trying to create a new macro in Word and i get the following error message

    "The function you are attempting to run contains macros or content that requires macro language support.
    When this software was installed you chose not to install support for macros or controls."

    Any help please as I have changed all the Trust Centre Settings, rebooted PC and tried again and still no joy.

  • Hi Pommette,

    I suggest you try the suggestion from Hans.

    This forum is for Developer discussions and questions involving Microsoft Word.

    This forum is for Developer discussions and questions involving Microsoft Word, your issue is more related with Word product, I will move this thread to the more related forum.

  • Thanks for the advice Paul - I thought these were totally separate forums, hence posting in both.

    I have now marked both posts as answered.

    Sorry for the confusion for everyone.
