    I am writing a few simple macros for VBA/Excel for use by myself and a small group of volunteers. In order not to compromise Excel security for Macros i should like to use a certificate. A self signed certificate is only usable on my PC. Is there a way/place where I can obtain a free or cheap certificate. Commercial ones cost > $200 which is total out of scale for the application.

    Chris,

    Here is a document I wrote on how to do this. The instructions are with an earlier version of IE but I've successfully used them on a Windows 7 Machine.

    You need at least a class 2 certificate for code signing - it's a verified certificate, not just an email request.
    StartSSL charge about US $50 for a 2 year certificate.

    cheers, Paul
