Word 2007, where’s the Organizer?

I occasionally develop macros in Word and having recently switched to Office 2007 (and a new computer) I initially found myself unable to move macros across from my old machine. Here’s how.

The first trick is to turn on the Developer tab. Open the Microsoft Office menu (the round button in the top left corner of the Word window) and click ‘Word Options‘. Click ‘Popular‘ and check the ‘Show Developer tab in the Ribbon‘.

Click the ‘Developer‘ tab and click the ‘Document Template‘ button. This opens the ‘Templates and Add-ins‘ dialog and the ‘Organizer‘ button is at the bottom of this.

In the ‘Organizer‘ window switch to the ‘Macro Project Items‘ tab. On windows XP you can find you normal.dot (where macros are normally saved) in C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates.
