I installed MS Word 2019 and I tried to record a macro, but program crashed and closed down.
I repaired installation, and I enabled macros in "options" and trust center but problem persists.
Anybody has suggestion how I can record macros without making Word 2019 crash?

  • Hi... word doesn't let me record any macros. When I press "create" to proceed to record the macro, Word closes immediately without any warning, and I end up at the desktop. I can't provide any screenshot because Word doesn't give me any message.... it just closes any docs that are open and sends me directly to the desktop. Any ideas? – Vladimir Regalado Oct 29 '18 at 14:47
  • Are you editing a .docm document? A .docx document cannot contain macros. – harrymc Oct 29 '18 at 17:14
  • wait a minute... How do I know if I'm using docm ?? As far as I know, all documents in word are .docx, or .doc (from older versions) – Vladimir Regalado Oct 30 '18 at 1:44
  • Not any more, this is a security measure. See What Is the Difference Between DOCM & DOCX? – harrymc Oct 30 '18 at 7:16
