How do I change from relative to absolute while using the macro recorder. When I scroll over the macro recorder, relative appears, if I click the button only relative message appears.

Thanks,

Do you have the Stop Redording toolbar visible when recording? Record a new macro, and if that toolbar isn't visible, select it from View, Toolbars. Then select the toolbar options (arrow on the right of that toolbar) and select Add or Remove Buttons, Stop Recording, and select Relative Reference.

That option should appear on the Stop Recording toolbar whenever you record a macro now.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Tazguy,
I really think this button needs to be relocated to a more intutive position, what do you think???????



Thanks again,

Doug S.
