Here is a strange one;
I recently reformatted my hard disk and reinstalled most the programs, including office Professional 2007 and Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard (not the free version).
When I attempt to open a document, any document, in Word I received the following message:
This error usually occurs because of macro security settings. If you know that the macro comes from a source that you trust, you can change your macro security settings to allow you to enable the macro. The way that you change your macro security settings depends on the Microsoft Office System program that you are using. Microsoft Office Access, Microsoft Office Excel, Microsoft Office PowerPoint, or Microsoft Office Word --
To check your macro security settings, click the Microsoft Office Button, click <program ame> Options, click Trust Center, and then click Trust Center Settings. If macro security is set to Disable all macros without notification, all macros are automatically disabled. Use the following procedure to enable the macro:
1. In the Trust Center dialog box, click Macro Settings, and then click Disable all macros with notification.
2. Click OK in the Trust Center dialog box to apply the new setting. Click OK to close the program options dialog box.
3. Close the file and the Microsoft Office program that you are using.
Open the file again. A Security Alert appears in the Document Information Bar just below the ribbon. Click Enable Content to allow the
macro to run. ......
After clicking OK several times the document finally opens but when I try to save or close it, I go through the same rigmarole - extremely frustrating!
I followed Microsoft instructions to the letter; I also disabled anything that might be stopping or holding Word back to no avail -- nothing worked! .... that is, until I disabled all the ".Com" Add-Ins. (When I enable only the Acrobat Add-In, Word returns ito its bad behaviour).
I am totally baffled because I had it all working fine for over a year before I reformatted the computer this time around - I am taking about the same computer, the same operating system, the same programs and even the same hard disk structure AND ... this particular Add-In IS installed on Access, Excel and Outlook with no problems whatsoever.
(I noticed that adobe acknowledge the problem with Word 2010 but not 2007)
Whilst I can workaround this problem by printing into PDF printer, I rather use the the Add-In; and as I used it before there is no reason why I cannot do it again; in fact I used conversions between .DOC and PDF (and vice versa) frequently and hardly any other format.
Can some one please get me out of my misery? :-(
