RE: Excel Macro doing mass Input via GreenScreen



fixed

What is the concern exactly? Is the green screen application not editing
the data correctly?
If the users have found a fast and convenient way to do their job why slow
them down?

Subject: Excel Macro doing mass Input via GreenScreen

I am still digging for exact details, but I received a call this afternoon
from a concerned IT Manager. He has heard of some users using Excel and
Macro's to do larger numbers of data entries via standard greenscreen
sessions. I assume they are populating a spreadsheet from an external source
and then running the macro to run the greescreen input. Anyone seen this
before? Can you stop it by A. Tasering the user(s) B. Using a Group Policy
to block ALL Macro Use within Excel ( this seems a little extreme) C. ??

I am not looking for better or different ways to do this, looking to stop
this method.

Thanks
