A macro to export an MS Word table as a Felix TM

Mar. 13th 2011

I’ve written a Word macro that will export a table as a Felix TM.

The table should be in the following format:

Source 1 Translation 1
Source 2 Translation 2

To Install

  1. Download the RegisterTableTM.zip
    macro file. (Right click and choose “Save As…”)
  2. Unzip “RegisterTableTM.zip”
  3. Launch Microsoft Word
  4. Press Alt + F11 to topen the Microsoft Word Visual Basic window.
  5. From the File menu, select Import File…

  6. Import the “RegisterTableTM.bas” file.
    Close the Visual Basic window.

To Use

Press Alt + F8 to get the macro window, and specify RegisterTableTM.RegisterTableTM.

Next, click Run.

The first table in the document will be exported as a Felix TM.

If you will be using a macro more frequently, then you can assign it a keyboard shortcut. To do so,

  1. Select Tools >> Customize
  2. Click Keyboard
  3. Set the “Categories” to Macros, and “Commands” to the macro you wish to assign
  4. Select “Press new shortcut key,” and press your keyboard shortcut.
  5. Click Assign.
