I have not experienced that behavior. Have you tried saving the MXD you are in after you edit your script? That might work. I do know that SP2 for 9.2 is about to be released. Maybe it has a fix in it.

Subject: shrug-l: Saving Normal.MXT

I know this sounds simple, But I am using ArcMap 9.2 and it does not always appear to save my macros (I am just trying to save in Normal.mxt). In the VBA editor I can select File->Save Normal.mxt and I notice the time and date on the .MXT file DOES NOT change until I  exit arcMAP.  But If arcMap crashes before I can exit (or exits in some other way) I appear to loose all my work even if I have tried to save using the File->Save Function? Anyone else experience this?  Is this a bug? Any work around?
