Windows 7: Word question.

Word question.

I just installed Office 2007 on my new laptop, then did an easy transfer. Everything worked out great except, when I try to open a word document, I get this Macro settings warning or something. It tells me to go to the trust link in word and reset something, but I don't understand what it's saying. Can anyone look at this and tell me what to do?

Thanks,
Bill

This is a macro security setting.
Follow the directions as you toggle down that screen.
If I remember correctly someone put that document is a secure and trusted place. Was it your document?

Looks like there were macros in your old office system that you have not replicated in your new system. Now it is looking for them.

Thanks for your replies. I have no idea what a macro is, nor how to set them or unset them.

Try logging on to MS Word as administrator!
Right click on MS Word and open as admin. and see if that helps.
Don't give up.

Is it just one document you can't open or is it multiple doc's?
I have seen this with Excel and macro's but not word.
Somebody set it up with macro's in mind.
Don't go away as I will find help.
We don't quit here!
