Hi,

Is there anyway to stop the Macros pop-out completely when we open a word document?
I know that Tools -> Macro -> Security -> Security level (Low)
might help me! But i want to completely get out of this problem? Anybody can help me?

Thanks..

Hi anitha,
Do you need the marcro to open? If not, save the document to .RTF and it will remove the macro.

If you need the macro, there is nothing much you can do about it unless you obtain a certificate from someone like Thawtes. The message appears because the macro is set at medium, set it high, and the macro will automatically be disabled, set to low is not recommended.

If you need to create a secure certificate, take a look here http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/Pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=194 .
