How to correct "can't load Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) error"
September 13, 2013 2:01 PM   Subscribe

I recently installed EndNote on my mac and have since been getting an error whenever I open Microsoft Word that says "can't load Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) error". How do I get rid of it?

Google says to make sure that my hard drive doesn't have any special characters... it didn't really before this, but I changed my hard drive name to exclude the possessive in "Name's Macbook" just to be safe... didn't work. Any thoughts on how to handle this? I can't do a fresh install of word because I no longer have the product key (unless, of course, there is some way to get my product key and some way to do a fresh install without a CD). Anyone come across this problem and found a way to fix it? Microsoft online help doesn't really make sense to me -- I don't know how I would be able to check that the hard drive name on the install folder excludes any special characters without a fresh install. Thanks.

What versions of Endnote and Word are you combining?

You might try resetting your Normal.dot template file.
