I want to enable macros permanently in the Excel settings for each of Excel Versions seperately 2003-2007-2010.

Now whenever i open an Macro enabled excel, i have to go manually each time and change the settings.

Instead i want to save the settings permanently, want to know the way it can be done on all the three different Excel versions- 2003,2007,2010

You would have to change the Security Level to low for each version.  However, this is not recommended.

Not sure what you mean by "permanently"...if you change to from, say, High to Medium settings, does it go back to high next time you open?  If so then you may have another Excel session open that resets it.

you should close all sessions, then open 1, change the settings and close it to save the settings "permanently"

However, if you're looking for a way to enable macros without the annoying warnings, Low will work but is not good.  A better way is to create a Digital Signature and use it every time you create/change a macro so that you can have it auto-enable your own code without that warning message.
