Command buttons in word not working

Hi, and thanks for taking the time to read this post.

I have created a word form .doc in office XP and addedd a button that should save, print & close the document.

The first time I tried the button it worked but sice clicking the button doesn't do anything.

I created another button to output a simple message box (as a test) and that does not work either.

Seems like I might have accidentally changed some setting within word. Any ideas?

You don't say which version of word, but if it's fairly recent look in Help/ Click on Detect and Repair

Hi, thanks for the response.

I am using Office XP, tried the detect and repair but still no go.

As a test, I have just tried a simple button to display a messagebox in Excel and that works ok, it just seems to be word that has the problem

Sorry I can't think of anything else, perhaps one of the other members who knows more about Word can help. At least this will take you back to the top of the postings.
