Excel, Visual Basic and security problem.

Hello Group,

In part of my code I'm using a procedure to detect number and list of existing macros in an active workbook. That works fine however, I'm having a problem when user has not checked the  "Trust access to Visual Basic Project" in 2nd tab of security tab (Tools > Macros > Security).

Is there any way that I can check it programmatically?

No, otherwise what would be the point of having a security mechanism?

I suggest showing a dialog to the user telling them that, in order to use your tool, they need to set that option on.
