  • Compile error in hidden module: AutoExec

    ...this relates to Office 2000: Whenever I start Word 2000 I get this message. I click OK and I can use Word absolutely fine: anyone know what the problem/solution might be. When I exit Word the message comes up again. Thanks all for your help

    Did you try "Detect and repair" ?

      No, I will do so. The thing is, it's an absolutely clean installation of Office 2000. Thanks, I will give it a go

        Try replacing the normal.dot file with one from a working Word install from another machine.

          Try going into the "Macros" dialogue and deleting the "Autoexec" macro.

            SL, thanks for this; i think this might indeed be the problem. Trouble is i can't delete the macro as when i highlight it, the delete button is greyed out. Any ideas? Or any idea on how i can disable macros altogether. Thanks again for everyone's help

              Can you edit the macro and comment everything out? I'm afraid my knowledge of VBA is limited to Access 97!! If you can't edit it you should suspect a virus or some other Word Macro-based malware.

                thanks for the really quick reply. edit button is also grayed out. absolutely NOT disagreeing with you regarding possible virus/malware. The laptop has recently been 'cleaned' and i have full antivirus protection etc. None of my internet pages are hijacked etc. My laptop is in no way 'playing up'. In short, i am pretty confident i don't have any malware etc. it' s a recently new install of Office 2000 also. Thanks.

                  Sorted! did a search on Google. I had the pdfmaker.dot template lurking in Office startup (I had previously removed Adobe Acrobat).
