Have you:

To manage these policy settings, you must first load the Excel 2007 Administrative Template file, Excel12.adm, into Group Policy Object Editor.

I have to admit this is way outside my area of knowledge or experience. I have only approached it from a purely logical stance - so I can't help much more. My only suggestions are:

1. They probably use some other rather arcane names for what you want to do

2. MS's helpline is probably the way through the problem
