The list of trusted sources might be locked Your system administrator
might have locked your list of trusted sources so that you cannot add new
macro developers to it.
The certificate for the source may not be authenticated. You can only add
certificates to your list of trusted sources if they have been
authenticated. Note that certificates created with the Selfcert.exe tool are
considered to be unauthenticated and can only be added to the list of
trusted sources on the computer on which they were created.
Because a digital certificate that you create isn't issued by a formal
certificate authority, macro projects that are signed by using such a
certificate are referred to as self-signed projects. Microsoft Office trusts
a self-signed certificate only on a computer that has that certificate in
your Personal Certificates store.
To view the certificate in the Personal Certificates store, do the
1.. Open Windows Internet Explorer.
2.. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options, and then click the Content
3.. Click Certificates, and then click the Personal tab.
Do you have Office 2003 SP3 installed?
