MacroDesc$() and CountMacros() Exclude Some Commands
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c
- Microsoft Word for Windows, version 7.0
If you run MacroDesc$() and CountMacros() for the following Word commands, a WordBasic error occurs and the functions return no value:
FontSize (see the "Notes" section below for additional information)
These Word for Windows commands do not appear in the Macro Name list, even if you select All Word Commands from the Macros Available In list.
Word does not display these commands because they are not allocated commands, which means they require a parameter that you cannot supply through a Word dialog box.
In contrast, in Word 2.x the MacroDesc$() and CountMacros() functions return values for the above WordBasic commands.
The following macro will demonstrate this behavior in Word 6.0, 7.0:
Sub MAIN FileNewDefault cm = CountMacros(, - 1) ' Counts All Macros Global, AddIn, BuiltIn gm = CountMacros(0) ' Counts Just Global macros am = CountMacros(,, - 1) ' Counts Just AddIn macros On Error Resume Next For i = ((gm + am) + 388) To (((gm + am) + 388) + 20) Insert Str$(i) + Chr$(9) mn$ = "" : md$ = "" mn$ = MacroName$(i, 0, - 1) Bold 1 : Insert mn$ Bold 0 : Insert Chr$(9) md$ = MacroDesc$(mn$) If md$ = "" Then md$ = "(none)" Insert md$ : InsertPara Print cm, i, mn$ + " - " + md$ Next End Sub
