macro settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • I started having trouble last week opening my Word files. I keep getting a message (which is translated from German) which starts like this: 

    This failure has occurred  as a result of macro security settings. If you are confident of the source of the macro, you may change the macrosecurity setting and activate the macro. The type of macro security settings that will be changed will depend on the microsoft office system program.

    People who then get my file cannot open it.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hi, Ryan,

    Sorry you're having problems. However, this forum is specifically for addressing issues and questions pertaining to Active Directory Rights Management Services in Windows Server. It's not a general security forum.

    You'd probably get a better answer if you asked for help in an Office forum, such as http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wordshare/.

    Good luck!
