My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Excel 2007 where I have created a macro.  But when I try to run it I get the error that "the macros in this project are disabled.  please refer to the online help or documentation of the host application to determinw how to enable macros.
I had enabled the macros by going to Excel Options  and then to the Trust Centre, and clicking somewhere Enable Macros.  But I still get this error.
Please advise me how to overcome this error.  possibly I am doing the setting in he wrong place.  Thank u.

This Knowledge Base article discusses your exact error, and how to fix it quickly. It looks like you have the security setting set too high.

Security setting set too high is not a problem, it is designed to protect you. All you have to do is add your file/location to the safe list. That's what you will read about in my article.
