Visual Basic Editor - Office 2010
Hi again everyone,
I've opened this here rather than the Office forum, as it's a mix of Office 20120 Professional, Windows 7 and Group Policy on Server 2008 R2.
This may sound like a bit of a weird question, but I don't suppose anyone knows a way of disabling Visual Basic Editor in Office 2010? We're having a few issues, and could really do with disabling it if possible.
As I said above, we're using Office 2010 Professional, Window 7 Professional and Server 2008 R2 if it come down to disabling it via group policy.

By the sounds of this post (How to turn off Visual Basic for Applications when deploying Office 2003 or Office XP) you are trying to disable the "Visual Basic for Applications" service. From a quick Google search there doesn't seem to be much information floating around.

Although the wiki page could provide more infos!

I know Macros themselves are disabled by default in Office 2010 and this can be enabled using a GPO (as I've done it).
As for disabling the Visual Basic Editor itself, the only way that might be possible is to create an admin install of Office 2010 then to Customise the installation of what components you want installed.

Thank you for the replies. Sorry I've not been around - big office move here.
Unfortunately Michael, creating a custom install is not really possible at this time, but worth looking in to for future images.
The other two suggestions sound rather promising. I've just had a look in GPMC. For some reason I can't upload a screenshot, but:
Computer Configuation / Policies / Administrative Templates / Microsoft Office 2010 / Security Settings / *Disable VBA for Office Applications*
is there. So we've obviously installed some of the templates. I shall give that a try once we've got our worktops sorted.
