MS Word - Privacy Warning Document Inspector

Every time I searched for help on Google, the results led me to help for Excel...not Word.

I'm in MS Word.

When I save, I get:

"Privacy warning: This document contains macros, ActiveX controls, XML expansion pack information, or Web components. These may include personal information that cannot be removed by the Document Inspector."

I save often while working, and it's really annoying to have to click okay when the above warning appears.

This document was saved from a .dotm (template where macros are enabled.)

Any advice appreciated!

You apparently created a template that you are using maco's. Normal Word Template is Normal.dotm

Any changes that you make to Normal.dotm will be applied to documents that you create in the future

Are you using Macro's????? If not then something is putting Maco's in the document, there is a Macro Virus, but any Anti-Virus should find it.

Thumbs up

Thanks for replying.

I use macros in my work.

I create a template always saving as .dotm

Then I right click, open, and save with different name as .doc for my work project.

I've already turned this particular document in.

It has not happened again.

Must have been a glitch because all my other documents are macro-enabled, and I have no issues with them.

I appreciate it, Murf!

By the way, do you know of any software that will re-create a work environment on my computer?

When I have a project, I open certain software tools, certain web pages, documents, etc. Sometimes I return to this same set up for days at a time.

I would love to automate my "work environment" with a macro or software that responds to voice commands.

Anything like that available?
