# Revision history [back]

Hello,

You do not need a macro within the document itself for the message to be generated. In fact, there doesn't even need to be a macro but simply a reference to one.

In a test document, there are no macros within the document:

However, there could be a reference to a macro within My Macros & Documents or even a Python macro not seen in the Basic IDE:

This was in Tools->Customize and the referred to macro does not even need to exist - the message will be generated. There can be other places within the document a macro was referenced also creating the same message. You need to find the reference(s) and fix.

When opening the document and getting this message:

clicking Disable Macros only disables macros for this document while it is open. Closing & reopening will produce the same dialog.
