    In MS word the security level of macro is by default set to High. That is word will disable all macros until the macro comprises digital signature and which is from the a trusted source or the macro was created by the program which is installed on computer system. While this setting is a good thing for most users, it presents a unique problem for others. In the Medium macro security level, you will still be able to run unsigned macros, but Word will prompt you first on this.

    It is recommended that you should select High Macro Security Level and only select Medium Macro Security Level if absolutely necessary. Setting macro security level to Very High is only recommended in cases where a user is expected to run a known set of macros.Setting the security level to Low allows a macro, Microsoft VB for Applications program. The macros of VBA can run only if the Trust all installed add-ins and templates option is checked
