How to create a trusted location:

Using macros in a file means it poses a security threat: macros can be programmed to run whenever the file is opened and they can do all sorts of nasty things, like deleting all the files on your hard drive. For that reason, when Microsoft Excel detects that a file contains macros it will allow you to open the file but will disable all macros.

By and large this is a sensible thing and you want this to happen – unless you trust the source of the file. If you know the file is safe you should tell Excel you trust it, and you do that by saving the file in a folder designated as a “trusted location”. You can designate as many folders as you want as safe, and you also have the option of including subfolders. Here is how you do it.

Excel 2010 and Newer Versions

  1. Click “File”.
  2. Click “Options”.
  3. Click “Trust Center”.
  4. Click “Trust Center Settings”.
  5. Click “Trusted Locations”.
  6. If the folder you have saved the file in is not listed, click on “Add new location”.
  7. Click “Browse” and navigate to the folder that you want to designate as safe.
  8. Click “OK”.
  9. Click the box next to “Subfolders of this location are also trusted”.
  10. Click “OK”.
  11. Click “OK” again.
