Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP

Select the settings for Microsoft Word documents.

Load Basic code

Loads and saves the Basic code from a Microsoft document as a special LibreOffice Basic module with the document. The disabled Microsoft Basic code is visible in the LibreOffice Basic IDE between Sub and End Sub. You can edit the code. When saving the document in LibreOffice format, the Basic code is saved as well. When saving in another format, the Basic code from the LibreOffice Basic IDE is not saved.

Save original Basic code

Specifies that the original Microsoft Basic code contained in the document is held in a special internal memory for as long as the document remains loaded in LibreOffice. When saving the document in Microsoft format the Microsoft Basic is saved again with the code in an unchanged form.

When saving in another format than Microsoft Format, the Microsoft Basic Code is not saved. For example, if the document contains Microsoft Basic Code and you save it in LibreOffice format, you will be warned that the Microsoft Basic Code will not be saved.

The Save original Basic code checkbox takes precedence over the Load Basic code check box. If both boxes are marked and you edit the disabled Basic Code in the LibreOffice Basic IDE, the original Microsoft Basic code will be saved when saving in the Microsoft format. A message appears to inform you of this.

To remove any possible Microsoft Basic macro viruses from the Microsoft document, unmark the Save Original Basic Code check box and save the document in Microsoft format. The document will be saved without the Microsoft Basic code.
