microsoft forefront client security removes VBA Macros from excel 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using microsoft forefront client security on my 2003-sp2 server . When I open an Excel file the macros are automatically removed with the message "Active X controls ..  "  . I have changed the Excel 2007 trust settings to allow Active X controls and Macros but I still cant record a new macro or view the existing ones. Is it because of the antivirus settings? Can anyone please share the steps to enables the macros and make the file read-write enable rather than the default read only one. 

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Miles,

    Thanks for your reply. 
    I have already changed the Excel 2007 trust settings to allow Active X controls and Macros. I am certain the issue relates to forefront settings.
