Recording macros?

Microsoft publisher

    I recently upgraded from Publisher 98 to 2002 without any problems. I was able to open my 98 files using 2002. After spending 5 hours editing my file and saving it, I can not open the file today. The error is Microsoft Publisher can not open file, do you want to open in safe mode. As a safety I created a backup before making all the changes and it opens it ok. WHAT IS WRONG..HAVE TO PRINT TODAY.
  • 2. more ram needed?
    We're running Pub2002 on an HP machine with 850MHz/128MB ram that we just added a new HP deskjet 5150 printer to. The problem is that when we try to print a publisher file it can take as long as 3 minutes for the job to go to the printer spool and another 4-5 minutes to finish printing!!! The same file converted to PDF prints immediately and so does any file from any other application. Almost thought the printer was defective. We're downloading the latest version of printer drivers from HP's website. Anyone run into this situation and have a good solution? Would adding another 256MB ram take care of it? Thanks!
  • 3. Printing a Mail-merge postcard
    Hello - I have successfully merged my database into a postcard I created in Publisher. However, when I go to "Print Merge", the option to print only that side of my 2-sided postcard is not listed. Therefore, I get 2 separate pages of 4-up postcards, which I am unable to use. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks for your time and consideration. Jeannine Clontz XXXX@XXXXX.COM
  • 4. change machines
    I bought a new machine. How can I move publisher over from my old machine to the new one? Just install again? Or transfer the license? If transfer the license, then how?
  • 5. location of personal information?
    As a team we'd like to locate color schemes and addresses in a central location. I can't seem to find where Publisher stores the personal information and/or the custom color schemes. Anyone know where they are located? Templates don't seem to store this info. Ken

Sorry Ian. Unfortunately, no version of Publisher comes with a macro recorder.

However, you can use Shortcut Manager for Publisher, available at
 http://www.**--****.com/ , to assign keyboard shortcuts to commands in
Publisher, and you can use the Visual Basic editor to write macros.

In Excel I use the feature to Record a Macro.  Excel records the keystrokes

don't know how to code VB.
