Once you have completed the needed steps, you need to tell Word that you are done recording. To accomplish this, select Stop Recording from the Macros button on the View tab, or click the Stop Recording button on the Status bar.
If you do not see the Stop Recording button on the Status bar, you will need to add it once the macro recording has been stopped.
1. Right-click on the Status Bar at the bottom of the Word Screen.
2. Select Macro Recording. This displays a red Stop Recording button.
