Word 5.0: Corrupted Text in Macro Variable

PSS ID Number: Q50400 Article last modified on 11-02-1994




In Microsoft Word version 5.0, a macro variable that is assigned a text string may become scrambled. To reproduce this problem, run the following macro:

<<set temp = "Hello World">><<temp>>

The result is a block character printed for each of the characters in the string instead of the character.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Word version 5.0. This problem was corrected in Word version 5.5.
