Recently, I created a macro and named it TableProperties and saved it. This macro will change the AltText in table properties of all the table in the document.

I opened a different document today and found that AltText in TableProperties is changed in all the tables in that document.

I checked the macros in that document and found TableProperties macro in Word commands. Delete button is disabled for all the macros in Word commands

Note: Macros are not present in any other options other than Word commands

Please let me know how to delete the macro from Word commands. I have attached the screenshot below

enter image description here


switch from Macros in : "Word commands" to "All active Templates and Documents"

this TableProprieties you found in "Word commands" is not a macro you have access to. You can not edit or delete it, it is a build-in Macro in Word.

You can copy it to a Document and use it there, but then you edit the version you have in the document. Use the selectbox called Macros in to switch to the macros of a document or to list all Macros "All active Templates and Documents"

  • thanks for your reply, but "All active Templates and Documents" does not have a macro, it is empty

  • You are right, I searched all day but could not find an option to delete or edit it.. All the macros in "Word commands" are non-editable ? Please add this info to your answer, I'll mark it as answer
