Remove macro in MS WORD
I have a MS Word to PDF converter code but the problem is when the WORD document submitted contains macro's, it stops from processing. I check the document properties but I cannot find any macros into it. Is there a way to check the word document for processing to determine if it contains macro then removes it?
I appreciate any help
You are definitely lost here: this is a Java-forum, not VBA.
I hope my fellow Java-freaks don't get mad at me, but I'll try to help anyway.
(WARNING: my Word/VBA-experience ends in 2003).
First: look for an other converter. A good converter shouldn't have problems with macro's but would probably ignore them.
You don't find macro's in the document-properties but under tools-macro-macros(Alt-F8). You can also go straight to the Visual-basic-Editor(Alt-F11).
You can delete them in the macro-popup or in the editor.
Take care removing macro's: they are mostly stored in templates (sometimes in a document, but then it is mostly ment to be a virus and your virusscanner will protest.) (Macro's in) templates, especially Normal.dot can also be used by other documents (not very probable in your case if you never made macro's).
1) Click on "Developer" tab of your document.
2) Click on "Macros".
3) A popup arises with the list of macros. You can either edit / delete them.
