The most common cause of difficulty in downloading is that your firewall security settings block downloads from web sites that have not been specifically
registered by the security manager. Discuss the problem with your systems administrator or temporally disable your firewall for the duration of the
download. If you still experience difficulty contact us.

I am experiencing difficulties running templates with Macros.

Many of our templates use macros to provide a more user friendly experience.

In Excel, you can set a macro security level to control what happens when you open a workbook that contains a macro.

In Microsoft Office, a component checks files for macros that could be unsafe. If macro security is set to High, running this macro is disabled.

If macro security is set to Medium, the user is asked whether or not to run macros. If macro security is set to Low, the macro is run.

The default security setting is High when Excel is installed. It is recommended that you set it to medium.

Depending on the Excel version rather than Medium you may be offered the option to "disable all macros with notification".

If macro security is set to Medium or"disable all macros with notification", the user is asked whether or not to run macros.

This level with not activate any macros without your specific approval.

A spreadsheet with macros is saved in a specific format, i.e. filename.XLSM.  If the filename of the template you are attempting to open
ends in .XLSM the spreadsheet contains macros and the macros should be enabled.

To adjust macro settings in Excel 2007:

  1. Click the Excel File menu, and then click Options.
  2. Click Trust Center, click Trust Center Settings, and then click Macro Settings.
