I want to put macros onto a toolbar in Word 2002. When I do this I get the whole macro path ie Normal.NewMacro.xxxxx How do I just have xxx in the button.

If I can do this how can I reset the toolbar that has file/edit/view/insert etc to get rid of the macro button with the long name

Thanks

I'm not 100% sure I know what you're doing, nor how you got a "long name on a toolbar". Perhaps this will point you in the right direction:
Microsoft is pretty consistent in how toolbars are used. BTW they call'm command bars now :thumbsup:
Main menu, View, whatever toolbar, right click, customize, and there is usually a cosmetic name you can assign to the macro/button control which you linked to the macro. My answer is mostly based on Excel, but Word is similar.
To remove any such item, use the same menu and drag it off the toolbar.

This is from Excel's help menu:




Rename a button or menu command

Make sure the toolbar you want to change is visible.

**
On the View menu, point to Toolbars.
Do one of the following:
Click the toolbar you want to display.
To view more toolbars, click Customize. In the Customize dialog box, click the Toolbars tab, and then select the check box for the toolbar you want to display. Click Close.
On the Tools menu, click Customize.

Rename a toolbar button

Click the button
In the Customize dialog box, click Modify Selection, type the name in the Name box, and then press ENTER.
On the Customize dialog box, click Close.
Note If the toolbar button doesn't display text, you won't see the name change except when you view the ScreenTip by resting the mouse pointer on the button.

**
When you added the button to the toolbar, it should have then given you the option of renaming the button, and assigning a custom icon to it.

One more thing to check:
You need WRITE priviledge to edit toolbars and menus. Try logging in as Administrator.
