Default Macro Security ?

I have created several Macros that won't run from buttons on the toolbar. If
I go to Tools - Macros - Macros and select the Macro from the list and
click on 'Run', they work just fine. To make things faster, I have created
(dragged) them to a button on the toolbar (Tools - Customize - etc.). But,
when I use the button, I get the "macro cannot be found or disabled due to
security settings" error. My security settings are at "Medium". I am
running Word 2002. (These same macros worked just fine under Word 2000.
Note: I didn't copy in the VB commands, I created them by stepping through
the actions.)

Thanks in advance.

In your macro security settings, check the box to trust installed templates
and Add-Ins. See http://addbalance.com/word/movetotemplate.htm for
step-by-step instructions on moving / sharing / copying / backing-up
customizations including AutoText, AutoCorrect, keyboard assignments,
toolbars, macros, etc.

Ooops. Should have mentioned that in my original post. That option is
already checked. I've even unchecked it and re-checked it again to no avail.

Thanks in advance.
