Copy macros to another document or template

Security  Use caution when you are adding macros to your template. Macros may be designed in such a way that their use could pose a security risk. We recommend that you use macros from trusted sources only.

  1. On the Tools menu, click Templates and Add-Ins.
  2. Click Organizer, and then click the Macro Project Items tab.
  3. To copy items to or from a different template (template: A file or files that contain the structure and tools for shaping such elements as the style and page layout of finished files. For example, Word templates can shape a single document, and FrontPage templates can shape an entire Web site.) or file, click Close File to close the active document (active document: The document in which you're working. Text you type or graphics you insert in Microsoft Word appear in the active document. The title bar of the active document is highlighted.) and its attached template or to close the Normal template (Normal template: A global template that you can use for any type of document. You can modify this template to change the default document formatting or content.). Then click Open File, and open the template or file you want.
  4. Click the items you want to copy in either list, and then click Copy.

 Note   If you have assigned macros to toolbars, you should also copy the toolbars.
