    preventing enable macro message (2k)

    When a workbook opens that contains macros, excel shows a message asking the user if they wish to enable macros. How can I prevent this message from showing so that the workbook opens with macros enabled?
    <font color=blue><font face="Script MT Bold"><big>Rob</big></font face=script></font color=blue>

    Set your securuty setting to Low, or digitally sign the workbook code and tell your system to trust the signature.

    Take a look at MSDN article XL2002: About Digital Signatures in Excel Workbooks . Although it mentions XL2002, it should work for XL 2000.

    You can use SelfCert.exe to create a digital signature for your own internal use.
