greetings,

i have recently cut & pasted some info on a word document.

now when i open the document it informs that some active content has been disabled.

on developer tab i try to view the macros but none are listed there!

my query is how do i identify what is causing this active content warning and remove it?

thanks for your help,


guygar.

Hi guygar,

This can happen if you've added any ActiveX controls to the document (eg checkboxes, textboxes, etc).

Hi guygar,

If the material you copied & pasted came from another document, ActiveX objects could have been included with that. If that isn't the case, it's possible the document has some internal corruption. A fairly reliable fix for that is to insert a new last paragraph at the end of the document, then copy & paste everything except that last paragraph into a new document. You can then close the original document and save the new one over it.
