Where is the macro stored? Obviously you store it in the template and all resulting documents from that template inherit the macro. When you store a new document from that template in some untrusted location, the macro can not be trusted anymore.

I assume the macro is stored in the particular document I wanted to change. I used the process in the 3.4 Writer Guide, "Updating a Document From a Changed Template" attempting to change that document's template update flag. In this document and some others, in the past I must have clicked on "Keep Old Styles" in the popup and according to the Writer Guide, that sets a flag to never allow template updates again for the document. Apparently, the only way to re-enable it is to run this BASIC Macro to set the "oDocSettings.UpdateFromTemplate" flag to "True". It is supposed to cancel the "Keep Old Styles" selection. The macro function is called "FixDocV3" if that helps.

I just realized that this is a *BASIC* macro, not the usual keystroke type macro. That difference may have confused you and other users when reading my message. Does a BASIC macro have a different security option somewhere?

Not knowing what the file format is, is it possible to unzip the document and search for "UpdateFromTemplate" and edit it to "True", as an alternate to the BASIC macro? If "UpdateFromTemplate" is hard-coded into the document rather than the symbolic name, I would need to know where it is in the document to change it, which I don't know.
