Automation with Macros in Word
Macros allow you to automate, customize, and extend the default Microsoft Word capabilities, including some common tasks and maintenance operations:
*Deleting hidden table of contents bookmarks that build up over time
*Production book tasks, such as updating fields and paginating multiple files
*Attaching different templates for conditional text implementations
This automation can streamline the content authoring process and save you valuable time and effort. Microsoft Word provides a VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) environment for macros to give you the automation capabilities you need. To enable macros, set the security level to medium. You can record steps to perform a specific task, and then copy and edit the generated code to do exactly what you need.
