Chapter 27. Introduction to Visual Basic... > Macro Virus Protection Issues

Macro Virus Protection Issues

Having completed the exercise to preview Gantt Chart—Print, save and close the Project file you recorded the macro into, and then open it again. This makes sure the macro is saved. It's also a good thing to do before testing, so if running the macro scrambles your data you can close (without saving changes) and then reopen the file and continue working.

When you reopen your Project file, what you are more than likely to see is demonstrated in Figure 27.5. As part of Microsoft's security policy, all Office programs (including Project) have a security certificate. With the medium security setting (default), you are warned when a file you are opening has a macro in it. Given the epidemic of Outlook and Word viruses in the world, this is a useful feature. Since there are no known macro viruses for Project as of mid 2000, it can only be a matter of time before some appear.
