Change Office 2007 Group policy settings

There are a lot of differences in the group policy management for Office
2007, compared to Office 2003. In Excel 2003, I had configured the Macro
Security Level to medium here:
Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Microsoft Office
2003/Security Settings/Excel: Macro Security level

Now that I've been looking through the Excel 2007 configuration, I can't
find a similar setting. What would be a similar setting in 2007 -
something
that does what the setting in 2003 does? Can anybody give me some advice
here?

Thanks!

Hello robclarke41,

You can edit GP Settings in Office 2007. You use the Group Policy snap-in to set Office 2007 policies from the Office policy templates (.adm files). After you set policies for a particular Group Policy object, Windows automatically implements the policies on the users' computers.

To load an Office 2007 policy in the local computer policy, follow these steps:

   1. Click Start, click Run, type gpedit.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
   2. Under User Configuration, right-click Administrative Templates, point to All Tasks, and then click Add/Remove Templates.
   3. In the Add/Remove Templates dialog box, click Add.
   4. In the Policy Templates dialog box, click the Office 2007 policy template that you want to add, and then click Open.

      Note The Office 2007 policy templates are located in the Path \ Winnt \Inf folder. Path is the drive that contains the Windows folder. Winnt is the name of the Windows folder.
   5. In the Add/Remove Templates dialog box, click Close.
   6. On the Tree tab of the Group Policy window, expand Administrative Templates under User Configuration.
   7. Expand the Office 2007 policy that you added in step 5.

You are ready to set the Office 2007 user policies that you want in the local computer policy.

Hi there, I dont believe you understood the question - I already have the adm templates in place and know how to use them from Office 2003.  I'm simply saying that the Office 2007 adm remplates are very different and that I can't find the setting to change the macro security level - do you know where/how I can change this?
