Copying Microsoft Word macros to new computer system

I'm trying to find/copy all the macros I created in my old Microsoft Word 2000 program to my newer computer with Microsoft Word 2003. I can't find the file that contains the macros. I really don't want to recreate them from scratch. Help!

    I downloaded the wizard tool but got absolutely lost about how to use it and apply it to my second computer. It's not user friendly at all, and I'm too much of a computer dummy to figure it out. Thanks anyway.

Macros are stored in one of two places, Irene - and you decide where and when you create one. When you select Tools -> Macro -> Record New Macro you’re prompted to either create the macro in the global template (normal.dot) file, or the document you’re currently working on - by default, normal.dot is selected so that the macros are available in all documents you create.

Your normal.dot file is also where all custom styles, toolbars and autotext entries are stored, and it’s possible to transfer all of these - plus your macros - from one machine to another courtesy of Word’s Macro Organizer tool. The walkthrough below explains how to access it and back up your macros to a file you then transfer to your second PC before copying those macros into the normal.dot file on that computer so the macros are accessible from there too.

While this tool is the best way to transfer macros, or other individual elements of your normal.dot file (just select the appropriate tab to transfer styles, toolbars and autotext entries in exactly the same way), if you’re migrating to another PC you may wish to take all your settings with you. If you have Office 2000 or later you can use the Save My Settings Wizard to back up all your Office customisations - including the normal.dot template - and then use the same wizard on your new computer to restore them to the version of Office installed there.

Office XP and 2003 users will find the tool installed with Office -access it from the Microsoft Office Tools menu on the Start -> All Programs menu; Office 2000 users need to download it from here. It’s called the Microsoft Office 2000 Profile Wizard here.

Just search for 'Normal.dot' file in your old computer containing you macro. Copy it..
Now search for the same file in your new computer and replace it with your old computer's file.

Copy Normal.dot from old to new computer.

and you r done..

I've run the profile wizard and am going to transfer the file to my new computer. What I need to know is how do I set up the profile in my new computer once it's there. Having already transferred everything else, my new computer doesn't automatically use the old settings. I still have to figure out how to get that done. Frustrating!

I removed the game bar frpom the tool bar.so now i cant see it any more.how can i restore it?


Hi


You can get them back by copying them from there original links or by creating a shortcut. You can find these games under this folder C:\ --> Program Data ->Microsoft -> Windows -> Start Menu -> Programs -> now you can find the games you want under this folder, search it by name of the game.

To place it in Start menu, drag and drop these games onto start menu or alternatively create a folder games under start menu and copy paste all these games under this new folder.

HP 2410 prints & copies fine but won't scan.


Well if you are able to copy from your printer,it suggests that the hardware is perfectly fine.Its just an issue with the software.May be you are using an old software that is not compatible with the new operating system of your computer.If this is not the problem then try uninstalling and then reinstalling the software.And mind that when to uninstall the software do it completely from the registry,program files as well as add/remove programs.If you want any further support, an online technician from techbuddies can help you for free.For this log on to http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz

Need to Know fully info about Macros


Macro is a simple way to automate tasks in Microsoft Office programs. It allows advanced users to program or create their own commands in Office, thereby automating tasks. For example, a user might want to create a table with four values already in them. The user could create one, and then copy it, and paste it. However, when you restart your computer, that data is lost. Unless you open the old document and copy the table, you'll have to start all over again. Macros helps you do your tasks. By recording the table creation to a macro, creating the same table over and over is just a simple macro away.
