Digital Signature?


B

B Lynn B

I'd like to put a digital signature on my XL2007 project, so internal users
can open from a LiveLink location (it's unsafe for them to make the location
a trusted one), without having to manually enable the macro/activex content.
But for the life of me, I can't figure out where I GET the signature. When I
open the VBA dialog box to add one, there are none to select from.

Hints please?

B Lynn B -

You get the digital signature by purchasing it.

See "Get or create your own digital signature" at

Thanks! I thought that seemed to be the case when I first looked into it,
but then someone who works near me said he had added one to a file of his.
He seemed to just have one available somehow.

If just for your own use on one computer Office has the SelfCert tool for
creating a digital certificate with which you sign your projects.

That may be what your acquaintance was thinking about.

Unfortunately you cannot export the key for this so cannot be used on other
computers.

But if others are linking into your computer it may work.

I have no way of testing so will leave that to you.
