Default Can't remove mystery add-in

I discovered an add-in in my Word today. I can't remember when I may have added it, or for what reason, or why it would have inserted a number of "contribute" and other macros I can neither delete nor edit.

It took me a while to look for the source in the add-ins listing. I have tried replacing Normal.dotm but it keeps coming back. It's Number Labels Version 1.3.



How can I get rid of this?

Thanks.

See Add-Ins in Microsoft Word.

Add-Ins can be either Word Templates or .com Add-Ins. The way to get rid of them depends on the type and the installation location. I never heard of the one you mention.

Much obliged, Charles. As it turns out, it was a ticket numbering add-in from Graham Mayor that I had needed for a little project some time back (Worked like a charm.) I had never had occasion to examine my macro list in the meantime.

All resolved. Thanks again.
