  • 1. Style question.
    Hi, How can I change the hight of the textback ground? I'm using a black background for my text and the text itself is white. What I would like to do is to make the text background higher but without making the font higher. The result should be a white text in a black background and with more "space" around the text. I don't want to make a textbox because it's my plan to set the font as a style. Hope this make reason. It's quite hard to explain.
  • 2. Editing Document with Pictures
    I have a multi-page document with photos on each page. The photos are NOT in text boxes. I'd like to copy a single page but I can't figure out how. It's not like you can run your cursor over the page and copy. Nor is there a copy option available in the edit menu. Let me know if there is a way to do this Thanks, Oreally

Macro security warning on opening Word 2002

Postby Orrie » Tue, 28 Oct 2003 23:44:18 GMT

Every time I open Word 2002, a security warning appears with a reference to
an Adobe certificate, and I have to click on Enable Macros or Disable Macros
to continue. The check box for Always Trust Macros from This Source is
grayed out. I think these macros have to do with an Acrobat Writer
capability entwined with Word, but I cannot untangle it. I have tried to
renew the certificate with no result. I have found no difference in the way
Word works whether I enable the macros or disable them. When I want to
convert a doc to pdf, I just choose Acrobat from the printer menu.

Is there any way to turn off this security warning. It's one of countless
annoyances in using Word 2002, and it's the first thing I see when I open
the program.

Thank you.

Orrie

If you go to Tools > Macros > Security and set the 
security level to High you will not be able to run any 
unsigned macros.  It won't even ask.  If you set it to Low 
you will never be warned, and will be able to run any 
macro without being asked.  Contact your IT people 
(assuming you work in an office) about the best choice for 
your situation, company policy, etc.

Thank you, Bruce.

It seems like a odd solution, though, to have to either disable all macros
or accept all macros, including ones that may contain viruses, in order to
overcome this annoyance.

Hi, Orrie,

Look in the Tools > Templates and Add-Ins dialog to see if pdfmaker.dot is
loaded as an add-in. If so, its file resides in one of the two Word Startup
folders -- see
 http://www.**--****.com/ 
to find the locations.

There may also be a pdfmaker.old.dot in the same location.

Either rename the file(s) with a different extension or move it/them to a
different folder. Restart Word, and you shouldn't see the warning any more.
Since you don't use the facilities the macros provide, you won't miss them.

Well, what you could do instead is find the add-in that's causing the
problem (probably in the Word or Office Startup folder) and remove it.

You could do that, unless it provides some functionality 
that you want.  For instance, I often have to convert 
documents to Adobe pdf format.  An add-in makes that 
possible from within Word.  In answer to Orrie's response, 
disbabling all or enabling all are the only two options in 
any case.  With Medium security the difference is that the 
user needs to make a choice each time.  Go to Help, and in 
the Answer Wizard box type "Digitally sign a macro" for 
more information.  You might find, as I did, that the 
relevant certificate has expired.

1.Security Warning, Word 2002

XP Home: Word 2002:

Security Warning
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Smart Tag\FDATE.DLL
contains macros by
Microsoft Corporation

I changed ( in the Word) Tools Options Security level to Medium (or Low)
then OK, window close. Open the macro Security window again and it is
magically back to High! Why please?

Next, which may be better overall solution is to somehow disable Word to
look in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Smart
Tag\FDATE.DLL at start up. This will be best solution leaving security level
to High, but how to do that please?

Will renaming C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Smart
Tag\FDATE.DLL to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Smart
Tag\OLDFDATE.DLL help? I did not test that before answer from MVP.

3.Can't get rid of Outlook 2002 COM Add-In Security Warning

Hi Outlook Developers  & Gurus,
I need some help with a Outlook VBA COM Add-In. Outlook 2002 gave me two
kind of warnings whenever the COM Add-in kicked in and executed.

1. A program is trying to automatically send e-mail on your behalf....
2. A program is trying to access e-mail addresses you have stored....

I tried the Microsoft Recommended method to get rid of the warnings,
referring to the articles Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 290498, 290499
. I installed the Outlook Security Administrator Package, declared the COM
Addin as a 'trusted code' in the default security settings form published in
a public folder 'Oulook Security Settings'.  Now, the warning no.1 dosent
appear, but warning no. 2 still does.  I dont understand what is going
wrong. I checked that the 'Application' object being used through out the
COM Addin is the same. The warning comes up when the code tries to get the
'current user'.  The COM Add-in does not use CDO methods anywhere. The
CheckAdminSettings registry key is also installed fine on the client
computers. I can use Redemption and modify the code, but why is not the
Microsoft recommended Method of declaring the COM Add-In as a trusted code
working to eliminate all the security pop-ups. Any suggestions please

4.Outlook 2002 SP3 Security Warning.

Every time I open Outlook, I get the warning "A program is trying to access 
e-mail addresses you have stored in Outlook. Do you want to allow this?" I 
click on No, and altogether get the warning 3 times. Often then the program 
tells me it has to close.
I have 2 questions
(1) I understand that the warning is prompted by a program trying to access 
the address book, but don't know what the program(s) is/are. Can anyone tell 
me what it/they might be, from this list of services running:
