running macro as trusted across many desktops

Per "http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa155754(v=office.10).aspx" I can get the macro trusted by: "The easiest way to prevent the macros security warning from appearing is to change the Outlook macro security setting to Low."  I have quite a few PC's that I would have to go around to do that to individually. Is there a way I can script this so I don't have to do it on each desktop individually/manually. The systems are mostly XP workstations logging into a domain. I don't really want to use certificates if I don't have to.

This is for an Outlook macro not Access.  It's not about a trusted location but about trusting a macro added to Outlook.

Sorry, misread a bit. Try having a look at the Outlook security administrative tools, I think thats what you need:

Thanks for the link. I am not sure as to the relationship between com objects and VBA code - that is what we have created the Outlook macro with.  Can I turn the Outlook macro into a com object?  

As well, how does this 'trusting'  compare with a self-signed certificate or a certificate purchased from an outfit like Verisign?

What I wanted you to know by reading from the link, is how you can deploy a trusted location og security settings to more clients from a server.
There is'nt much difference between a certified document, and a document placed in a trusted location. Both things auto-anable macros.
The big difference is, that some people need to verify that a specific document comes from a specific source. So if I were to deliver some specific document to you, I could use my certificate to assure you that I was the creator of this document. If anyone tryed to change my document, or create a fake one, the certificate will be removed.

I don't know anything about the difference between self-signed and purchased certificates though, sorry.

Thanks for the clarifications.  What about the issue of " Can I turn the Outlook macro into a com object?  "

To be honest... I don't know that much about com objects, so I can't give you a fair answer to that one :(
