I do a lot of editing for people who use Word 2000 and later Word editions. I need a compiled macro that will run multiple editing commands that will edit an entire document at the click of one macro icon. I had made one that did all I wanted. It took me over a month to compile all the editing commands I needed. It took many hours of testing to make sure none of the commands messed up previous commands. Before I had time to completely finish tweaking it, I had a computer crash and lost it. I was wondering if there is a macro here that anyone has made that will do this. I am willing to work on it if it needs tweaking to my particular needs. I am required to use "The Chicago Manual of Style" as my guide. Please email me at kittyhawk63@juno.com if you know of such a macro available here on DonationCoder.com. Thank you so much. kittyhawk63

This is probably of no help, but for almost anyone who has done anything useful with a computer :-

Rule 1 - Make a backup as soon as you start, and regulary there after. And that includes any Password ! smiley

If anyone knows of any sane way to program in MS Office, I'd love to know as well. Sad

VBA is the way to program in Microsoft Office.

As to whether or not that is sane, it probably depends on your frame of reference.

You need to explain what you mean by "edit an entire document." What specifically do you want the macro to do, check grammar and spelling?

I set this macro aside...until now. Here is my problem: I made a macro that ran more than 100 macros. The macros would edit an entire document . . .  no matter the length of the document. I lost the macros in a computer crash. (I did not know at the time how to save these macros to disk.) These 100+ macros would edit spelling errors, punctuation errors, change British punctuation and spelling into American punctuation and spelling, change italic fonts to regular fonts, change straight quotes to smart quotes, fix spacing between separate sentences, etc., etc., etc.  I am wondering if anyone has such a macro already made that I can tweak for my purposes.
Thank you.
