Posted by on 15 October 2014 12:41 PM

When users are upgrading from an older version of office to office 2013, users are opening word and sometimes getting an error message when creating a new blank document. This error message will state " the macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of your macro security settings". To resolve this issue, follow the steps below. 

- Go to this file location: C:\Users\%User%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP

- Once you are in the STARTUP folder, look for an  Avery dotm file. If this file exists, delete it. 

- Once this file is deleted, try opening a blank document, you should no longer receive the Macro error message.
