    I have upgraded to MS 2000. Previously installed macros are still present; I
    can run them but I cannot edit or delete them. In MS Word/Tools/Macro/Macros
    the headings are Run|Step Into|Edit|Create|Delete|Organizer...|Cancel. Edit
    and Delete are greyed out. Run is OK. Step Into produces comment: Project is
    unviewable.

    How can I Edit and Delete please!

    Hi David,

    That symptom means that the macros are in a global template. The only macros
    for which you can view the code are those in Normal.dot, those in templates
    on which open documents are based, and those in templates that are open
    themselves.

    To edit or delete the macros, you'll have to use the File > Open dialog,
    navigate to the Startup folder, and open the template directly.
