How to Create a self-signing certificate

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.

Follow the steps given below:

Steps to Windows Vista

1. Click the Start button, point to All Programs, click Microsoft Office, click Microsoft Office Tools, and then click Digital Certificate for VBA Projects. In the Your certificate's name box, type a descriptive name for the certificate.
2. When the certificate confirmation message appears, click OK.

To view the certificate in the Personal Certificates store, do the following:

1. Open Windows Internet Explorer.
2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options, and then click the Content tab.
3. Click Certificates, and then click the Personal tab.

Steps to Windows XP

1. Click the Start button, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Office, point to Microsoft Office Tools, and then click Digital Certificate for VBA Projects. In the Your certificate's name box, type a descriptive name for the certificate.
2. When the certificate confirmation message appears, click OK.

To view the certificate in the Personal Certificates store, do the following:

1. Open Windows Internet Explorer.
2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options, and then click the Content tab.
3. Click Certificates, and then click the Personal tab.
