Converting your macro to the basic macro format

Converting your macro from the advanced macro format to the basic macro format can be very difficult. There are no automatic conversions when you uncheck the "Use Variables and Arithmetic Expressions in Macro" checkbox. The only automatic result is that the Macro object:
  • Disables all the advanced features for the macro.
You yourself must change, one at a time, by hand, all the representations of strings and of the two special characters back to the basic representations. Also, you will have to delete any instances where advanced features have been used in the macro. If you do not do so then you might encounter errors or unexpected results when you try to save or run the script. Any remaining operator characters will be treated as literal characters rather than as operators.
