saving document with a vba-macro signature

Hi everybody,

I've got a word-template with a vba-macro in it. This macro runs through the document and refreshes all fields (toc etc.) because DocIO logically cannot do this. I also attaches a digital signature to this macro so that the users don't have to handle a dialog when opening this document in order to allow macros or not (high security level for macros).

That is the idea, but when I open the document (after I inserted content and saved it of course) the signature is kind of corrupted so that it is not possible to allow macros.

In a nutshell: Saving a document with a signatured vba-macro in it does not work.

Any ideas :-)


PS 'SELFCERT.EXE' creates a digital signature and 'certmgr.msc' manages all signatures / certificates

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Currently we don't have support to preserve the document with VBA-Macro signature. We have support to preserve macro alone in the Word documents.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best Regards,
