Excel 2007: Copying a developer's signature to a second computer

  Asked By: Pamela    Date: Dec 27    Category: MS Office    Views: 2026

I edit VBA code on several computers. When in the office I use a
desktop, when at home I use another desktop and when on the road I use
my laptop.

Having three separate digital signatures in the same name kinda
defeats the purpose of the unique identifier of a particular
developer. I suppose I could ask the guys who use my spreadsheets to
entrust digital signatures for the three computers, but I'd rather
just sign everything with the same signature, and not have to keep
re-signing everything every time I edit a macro on a different computer.

Is there any way I could install and sign with the same signature on
all three computers? All have Office 2007 Ultimate installed, if that
makes any difference.

Four days with no reply, am I to read this as an answer that it isn't
possible to load a developer signature  onto multiple machines and I'm
going to just have to sign things with three different signatures?
