Hi
I have a problem with word macros not running on Win2K. Have installed win2K from scratch and installed office 97SR2b from the CD. Have network templates which run macro's which prompt user to fill in, which work fine in NT and win95. The macro appears in the list of macro's but still nothing happens when I try to run the macro manually. Any ideas much appreciated.

thanks
pjl

Hi pjl_21,

it's a rights issue from the looks of it, here's an article essentially written for NT but i guess also valid for 2000

am still testing this and think that there may possibly be a problem with digital signatures or certificates. I have tried putting the security down to low but it still has the same problem.
