First make sure you are using the most recent version of WeiDU from http://www.weidu.org/~thebigg/ (not the one from www.weidu.org).

 

To invoke a macro you need to write LAUNCH_ACTION_MACRO ~macroname~ or LAUNCH_PATCH_MACRO ~macroname~ (depending on the type of macro).  In this case, deleting a spell header is a patching activity.

 

You can abbreviate LAM for action macros and LPM for patch macros.  So LPM ~DELETE_SPELL_HEADER~ (the ~~ are optional too).  That is a complete command, with no END following it, unlike functions where you BEGIN and END (because you give a function a list of parameters, but you do not give any parameters to a macro).
