Macro Security Levels in Office 2003

Macro security is used to help control the activation of executable code embedded within a template, document, workbook, presentation, and in most cases objects connected to these storage files through an OLE link or Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) connection. Depending on the setting of macro security, the following startup options for files loaded into Microsoft Office 2003 applications are available:

  • Run executables automatically when trusted (achieved through High and Medium macro security levels)

  • Block executables because they are not trusted (High macro security level)

  • Prompt to enable and run an executable because it is currently not trusted (High macro security level)

  • Run executables only after user approval (Medium macro security level)

  • Run all executables without any security precautions (Low macro security level)
