Using Configuring MS Office Macro SettingsTo top
For most users, new macro settings will have no impact on daily operations. For those that utilise macros, in particular in MS Excel, you will be prompted to approve the running of macros when you open files. If you trust the file or you have created the file, then it is ok to run the macro or ‘enable content.’
- The most common way malicious macros enter a computer system is via an email or website. If you are prompted to run a macro after opening an email, or after downloading something online, the safest option is to reject this macro.
- If you purposefully download a macro to run but you are not sure if it is safe, please contact your Internal ICT Manager to check this for you.
