Default VBA macros

Just started trialling 2011. Did a simple macro where I highlighted all then did some find/replace all operations. However, the latter did not occur or appear in the VBA code:
Sub Email()
'


' Email Macro
'
'
Selection.WholeStory
ActiveWindow.DocumentMapPercentWidth = 17
Selection.WholeStory
Selection.WholeStory
Selection.WholeStory
Selection.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphJustify
Selection.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = wdAlignParagraphJustify
Selection.Font.Size = 9
Selection.Font.Name = "Arial"
End Sub

Why???

Hi tays01s,

Are you sure the macro recorder was on when you did the Find/Replace? If it was, the macro would probably be named 'Macro1' or something similar and would be placed in a code module named 'new macros' in either the document you're working on, or in Word's 'Normal' template, depending on the parameters you used when you did the recording.

Positive.

Selection. Whole story.

came before the formatting as the end. The Find/Replace came after each:

Selection. Whole story.

Also I changed 'Macro1' to 'Email' as the macro name.

This isn't something to do with me being on the 30 day trial???

Hi tays01s,

Since the macro recorder apparently captured your 'email' sub, I doubt using a trial version has anything to do with it (unless, perhaps, the trial period has expired).

For a recorded Find/Replace macro, you should see code like:
Code:
Sub Macro1()
'
' Macro1 Macro
'
'
  Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
  Selection.Find.Replacement.ClearFormatting
  With Selection.Find
    .Text = "some text"
    .Replacement.Text = "^&"
    .Forward = True
    .Wrap = wdFindContinue
    .Format = False
    .MatchCase = False
    .MatchWholeWord = False
    .MatchAllWordForms = False
    .MatchSoundsLike = False
    .MatchWildcards = True
  End With
  Selection.Find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
End Sub
If you care to describe what you're trying to achieve, I might be able to provide you with something far more efficient than what the macro recorder will give you.

Yes, that's what I should see and did see in the same Macro in Word X. I tried putting in the Find/Replace code and it still doesn't work.

At the moment I'm more concerned with finding out why Word doesn't work that the actual macro in question.

Default Word macro: Only partially records

OK, I admit this is a re-run of VBA macro Q.

I've got a trial Office 2011 (mac). Records Excel macros fine. When I record a Word macro including Select all > Find/replace various bits, it all works on screen but when you try to re-run the actual Macro it fails because 'find/replace' aren't recorded within it.

If I copy the contents of my original VBA from Word X to the almost empty 2011 macro, the latter works.

What's going on?

A similar thing happened when I cropped and resized a picture, and recorded the series of actions as a macro. When it came to run it on a different picture, nothng happened. When I looked into the macro, there was nothing there, other than the sub xxx and End Sub lines.

And ctrl-y doesn't seem to repeat actions for pictures.

I found the problem for find/replace. If you use the normal find/replace, it doesn't work. However, if you use 'Edit>Advanced find and replace' it does record.

I wonder if there are similar problems in Word? It's a pretty bad bug.
