    Yes it is possible to some extent. To digitally sign a file click on Tools menu and then Options and click the Security tab.Then click on Digital signatures. Then click on Add and choose the certificate you want to add, and then click OK. For more information, please refer to the topic "Digitally sign a file or macro project " in the Microsoft Excel 2003 online help.

    You have been given some misinformation. The above describes a method of digitally signing a workbook and/or VBA code by using a digital certificate so users can "trust" the workbook and code. It has nothing to do with adding an "electronic signature" of the type requested. You could insert a picture of your signature or get it changed into a font and insert it into either a header or footer. If using Excel 2002 or newer there is a option of adding a graphic to the headers and footers. And this would also work for email.

    You can make a digital signature by your own, but such signatures are not called as the verified ones. The trusted signature are issued by Microsoft, and the one which is created by us are called as self assigned signatures, now a days it is easy to buy the Digital Signature online.
