Macro-enabled template will not open in Excel 2013
Error: Macro-enabled template will not open in Excel 2013I have a macro-enabled excel template that we written and used in a previous version and it will not open in Excel 2013.
My trust settings are "prompt before enabling macros" but when I enable them the screen goes blank.
I can still see and navigate the menu ribbons, but it acts as though there is no workbook open.
Has anyone encountered this issue and do you know a fix?
