Word does not open a set of macros

Hello all,
I have a slight problem with Excel and Word.
I am using Office 2003, SP3 with Windows XP SP2.
In the startup folder of Word I have a .dot file including macros for a proprietary CAT tool (like the Trados7.dot file).
I created hyperlinks pointing to the docs in an excel file containing the list of files I have to translate (file names and directories were complex, therefore I wanted to make it simple).
When I click on the link in Excel, Word opens my files but does not fire the macros in my .dot file. I have to activate them by hand. If I open my file directly from Windows Explorer, everything is fine. Does anyone have an explanation to this behaviour?
Regards

GAbriel

Is it SP3? Oct 5, 2007

Did it happen after updating Office 2003 to SP3?
I experienced a similar problem with Trados after the recent update.

Hello,
no, in fact it happened before and after the installation of SP3.
