Default Distributing form with spell check macro

I created a macro to do the spell check on exit of a field in a .doc file.
When I then put that document into our public folders in Outlook and another
user opens it, the spell check doesn't work. I checked the properties on the
field and the macro isn't shown for that user.
How do I get that macro to save in a document posted to public folders for
all users?

You need to make sure the code is contained within the form. Chances
are your code is in your Normal.dot as it defaults there. If you
didn't move it, it is most likely not inside that doc/dot.

See this TechTrax article for details.

See http://addbalance.com/word/movetotemplate.htm. Simplest method long-term
is to put the macro into a global template that is shared/available to all
users and documents.
