Weird Word Problem

 The massive Word document including my mass murder incidents crashes if I try to run any macro, or even start the Developer->Macros command.  I renamed the Normal.docm file as DefectiveNormal.docm to see if this file is the problem.  No change.

From the event log:

I reinstalled Office, opened in safe mode, opened my document, and it saw no macros, of course, but it allowed me to record a macro.  I saved the document and then reopened in normal mode.  View macros still crashes it.  It does not appear that reinstall created a new Normal.docm.

I saved the file as an RTF, then reopened Word, opened the RTF and the macro command crashes Word.

GeekSquad worked on this for a while without success.  I imported it into LibreOffice Writer.  All the footnotes are now 0.  Are any of you expert enough in LibreOffice to tell me why?  The first new footnote and all of them updated.
