Converting your advanced format macro to the basic 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 clear the option to use variables and arithmetic expressions. The only automatic result is that advanced features are disabled for the macro.

You must manually change, one at a time, all of the representations of strings and the two special characters back to the basic representations. You must also delete any instances where advanced features have been used in the macro. If you do not do so, you might encounter errors or unexpected results when you try to save or run the script. Any remaining advanced macro format operator characters will be treated as literal characters rather than as operators.
