1 Solution
i dunn have the exact idea of how to disable a menu button
but u need to know the control ID of the button which u want to be Disabled
and u need to go to the console for that
click start->Run->Type "MMC" and press enter
here u go
this is the console and from here itself u can disable those buttons (but how....i dunn know....sorry 4 dat)

2) How to force the file opener to execute the Excel VBA (Suppress the Macro Warning)?

it has something to do with security level
if security level is set to High den there will be a warning and if it is low den d macro will run without any warning

Hi Howard,

1) If you mean File/Save and File/Save As, you would use:

 With Application.CommandBars("Worksheet Menu Bar").Controls("File")
  .Controls("Save").Enabled = False
  .Controls("Save As...").Enabled = False
 End With

And if you are referring to the buttons on the toolbar:

 Application.CommandBars("Standard").Controls("Save").Enabled = True
 Application.CommandBars("Standard").Controls("Save As...").Enabled = True

2) You cannot suppress the macro warning via VBA, the user will either have to put their macro settings on low (not recommended!), or they can have the security set to medium/high and you can attach a certificate to your code and have the user 'trust' macros from that source.  There was a question about this yesterday, see http:/Q_21859429.html for more details.

There are ways of 'forcing' a user to enable macros for a workbook, only by hiding everything from the user if macros for that book are not enabled.  See http://vbaexpress.com/kb/getarticle.php?kb_id=578 for an example of this, though there are many more examples out there.  

why only mvidas??
