WordBasic Error When Adding a Symbol Font to a Menu


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c


If you record or create a WordBasic macro that adds the Symbol font to a menu, keystroke, or toolbar, Word generates the following WordBasic error message:

WordBasic Err=24
Bad parameter


This problem occurs because Symbol is the name of a font and the name of a command.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word for Windows. This problem was corrected in Word version 6.0 for the Macintosh, Word for Windows 95 and Word for Windows NT.


This problem does not occur if you add the Symbol font to a menu, keystroke, or toolbar without using a macro.
