Excel file with macros won't open

By mcgrath.b ·

I am dealing with a problem where there are 4 PCs, each with this excel file with macros. It will only open on one of the PCs. Each PC has the same verision of office (2k), xp pro sp2, mcafee virus scan.

Any ideas why this file will open on one pc, and not the rest?

Does it not open on that computer or the users account at that workstation? Is it a networked file or on the persons HDD?

it's excel... change your security level on the app. tools->macros->security set it to medium so you will be prompted to run the macros when you opent the doc.

make sure the xls file isn't write protected. with Macros sometimes this will cause it to fail.

If Excel has a macro security level of HIGH, macros will not open. Within Excel click on Tools\Macro\Security and set the security level to medium (safer) or low.
