About DocTools, Word Add-Ins and the person behind

Lene Fredborg

My name is Lene Fredborg. I established DocTools in 2006. DocTools provides professional templates and efficient tools in the form of add-ins and macros for Microsoft Word. In addition, DocTools provides consultancy within all areas related to Microsoft Word.

I have been working professionally with Word and have been programming add-ins and macros in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) for more than 25 years.

Since I started DocTools, I  have developed customer-specific solutions in the form of Word templates, add-ins and VBA macros for private companies as well as the public sector in Denmark and foreign countries, primarily the USA. You can see examples of customers on the References page of my main website.

The main website of DocTools is thedoctools.com. From the main website, you also have access to free Word macros and free Word tips. I also provide Word tips in Danish via my blog, Lene Fredborg's Word Blog.

As part of my work with programming of Word add-ins and macros in VBA for many organizations, I have developed several add-ins that can function as stand-alone products. In addition, I have developed a lot of add-ins for my personal use. I use many of those add-ins every day and they help me work far more efficiently and be a lot more productive than I could be without those add-ins.

Via this site, DocTools Word Add-Ins, I want to make add-ins available to Word users in general. The add-ins provide supplemental tools for Word that can help you improve productivity and work more efficiently in Word.
