I'm an experienced VBA programmer and have a digital signature that I've used on Access and Outlook for several years. Prior to Word 2010 I've been able to run macros without a digital signature. Now it seems Word 2010 wants to have one.

If I add a macro to my Word VBA Project on my computer, add the digital signature, how to I copy the signed macro to someone else's computer? Or is it easier to create a digital signature for each user, then just copy the code into their Word macro editor, sign it with their signature and go that way.

Either is as good as the other I find.  Once you sign it anyone on any pc can use it. IT is easier overall if the signature is a commercial one as the certification is easier to pick up.

The part I'm missing is: Where is the signed file? What file do I copy to the user's PC?

You sign the macros in the source document and distribute that.

A variation on that theme is you create a template .dotm for example and distribute that.  

One way being to take your doc and save as template.
