ViewFootnotes Command in Exit Macro Causes GP Fault


The information in this article applies to:

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


If your protected Word for Windows form contains an exit macro that runs the ViewFootnotes WordBasic command, a general protection (GP) fault error may occur when you press TAB to exit that FORM field.


The GP fault occurs if you are in normal view. It does not occur if you are in page layout view.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of Word listed above. This problem was corrected in Word version 7.0 for Windows 95.


Modify your exit macro so it switches to page layout view before running the ViewFootnotes command.
