Microsoft Word macro since last update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since the last updates the message keeps coming up when I try to edit word items I have copied--the function you are attempting to use contain macros or content that requires macro language support. I have gone to the trust center and enabled all macros and the same message keeps appearing.

  • Hi,

    Would you please check the Office version? Maybe you could refer to About Office: What version of Office am I using? to have a check.

    As far as I know, the error message often occurs with Visual Basic for Application or some add-ins. Please follow the below steps to check whether they are helpful.

    1. Check the add-ins. Please refer to step 4 and step 5 in the part of Determine which COM add-in program is causing the problem.

    2. When all add-ins are all disables, but the error message still comes up, please check your Office installation version, MSI or C2R? To determine it, you could refer to Determining your Office version – MSI vs. C2R

    If it is MSI, you could search the Control Panel and open it > Programs > Programs and Features > Right click the Office, click Change > Add/Remove Features > Expand Office Shared Features > Click on the little arrow attached to Visual Basic for Application > Select Run from my  Computer > Continue. Then you could open the word document and check the issue.

    You could also uninstall the recent updates. Go to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > View installed updates on the left > Right click the recent updates and uninstall them one by one.

    If it is C2R, you could try to revert to an earlier version of Office. This article is suitable for the C2R version Office. 

    You could also try to repair Office. Go to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features > Right click the Office, click Change > Quick Repair. If the Quick Repair is not helpful, please try Online Repair.

    If the steps above don’t work, maybe you might check the macros.

    If you have any updates, please feel free to let me know.

    Best Regards,

    Emily

  • Just a side note: Enabling all macros is not a way to safely run Word connected to the Internet. As a diagnostic it may be useful.

    Does the document contain any ActiveX controls.

    .docx files?
