When you save a Microsoft Word 98 Macintosh Edition document that containsVisual Basic for Applications code to another document format, such asRich-Text Format (RTF), you receive the following warning:
All macros in this document will be lost if the document is saved in <Selected Document Format>. Do you want to save in this format anyway?
None of the converters that ship with Microsoft Word 98 Macintosh Editionsupport the conversion of Visual Basic code. If you need to save a documentin a format other than Word 98, make sure you have a backup copy of yourWord 98 document before you convert it.
