Before actually running MultiMacro, prepare to use it by following these steps:

1. Back up your documents. MultiMacro is powerful. It will do exactly what you tell it to, and it will do it to all the documents you specify. If you make a mistake, you'll want something to go back to. Please, please believe me.

2. Record a macro that does the task you need done. For complete instructions on recording a macro, see your Word manual or Help file. Here's the basic procedure:

a. Click on the Tools menu.

b. Click “Macro” (and, in Word 97, 98, or 2000, “Record New Macro”).

c. In the Macro Name box, type a name for your macro.

d. Click the “Record” button.

e. Click “OK.” (The Macro Record toolbar will appear on your screen.)

f. Do the things you want your macro to do, such as inserting text, finding and replacing, and so on.

g. Click the “Stop” button on the Macro Record toolbar.

3. Try your macro on some sample files. Make sure it works the way you want it to.
