Where Did My Macros and Forms Tools Go?

If you've upgraded to Word 2007, you might be frustrated when you first go through the new ribbon to try and find your macros and/or form controls. The fact is that these menu items have to be added on to the ribbon manually.

Click the Microsoft Office button, 'Word Options', and in the 'Top options for working with Word' section of the Word Options dialog box, click 'Personalize'. Select 'Show Developer tab in the Ribbon'.

Once you're done there, you'll see another tab show up on your ribbon called 'Developer'. It's there that you'll find the option to view your macros, record a new one, etc. You'll also see your form tools there - such as fill-in fields, drop-down menus, etc.
