That's easy. That's so easy, in fact, that you hardly need a tutorial.
This is how I do it in Word 2003:

- From the menu, choose Tools>Record>Record new macro
Then in the dialog box that pops up:
- Change the proposed name (macro1) if I prefer another one
- Choose between assigning to the toolbar, to a shortcut key or none by pressing the corresponding button and filling in the details
- Choose if I want to store it in my template normal.dot or in one of my open documents
- Change the description if I like
- Press OK
The macro recorder now starts recording everything I do. When I'm done, I click on the square ("stop recording", there's the possibility to pause also) in the small floating toolbar that has appeared. And then my recorded macro is ready for use.

Here are 2 links from the Microsoft Office online help. But I assume you already read those?
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA100997691033.aspx (Word 2007)
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HP051894201033.aspx (Word 2003)

Hope this helps.

And just to add,

you can then goto Tools > Macro > Macros, and in the new window highlight the macro you just made, then click Edit, and the Visual Basic Macro editor will display, showing you the VBA code you just created.

That's a great way to learn.
