Q205539: WD97: Recorded Macro Doesn’t Insert Frame Contained in AutoText
Article: Q205539 Product(s): Word 97 for Windows Version(s): Operating System(s): Keyword(s): kbmacroexample word8 kbwordvba kbautotext word97 kbframe Last Modified: 13-MAY-2002 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The information in this article applies to: - Microsoft Word 97 for Windows ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SYMPTOMS ======== When you record a macro to insert an AutoText entry containing a frame, Microsoft Word does not insert the frame when you run the macro. For example, the following recorded macro does not insert the frame contained in the specified AutoText entry: Sub InsertMyAutoText() Application.DisplayAutoCompleteTips = True NormalTemplate.AutoTextEntries("AutoTextName").Insert _ Where:=Selection.Range End Sub NOTE: "AutoTextName" is the name of your AutoText entry. CAUSE ===== The RichText property is not recorded automatically when you record the macro. You must manually add the RichText property to your macro code and set it to True. For more information about the RichText property, from the Visual Basic Editor, click the Office Assistant, type "richtext" (without the quotation marks), click Search, and then click to view "RichText Property."
