I have installed a macro but when I try to run it I get an error message stating that the macros are disabled. How do I enable the macros? I'm not able to find this in MS Word Help. Thanks!

Click tools, macro, security, if it set to high, put the dot in medium and click apply so you can run the macro, however, ensure you return the dot to high and click apply before closing Word

Thanks, Keith. I did as you suggested and received the same error message. I even tried setting it to low, and still got the macros disabled message. Any other suggestions?

Can you click tools, macro, macros and add it?

Yes, I had already done that. It just won't let me run it. I solved the problem though ... I just recorded my own macro, and it runs that one just fine. Not sure why it won't run the one I had downloaded from my employer's site. Thanks for your help though. If you have any other thoughts, I'd appreciate hearing them in case this comes up again.
