quickest permanent fix will be opening a excel file at the workstation of the other guy, opening the VBA editor ([Alt]-[F11]) and browsing through the macro's that are present in the file itself and macro's that reside in underlying templates.

One of these macro's will be ScOnWINDOW.

You can then decide to copy this macro to a template at your location (off course depending on wether or not you want to enable the contents of the macro).

When you copy-paste the whole macro or just generate an empty placeholder somewhere in your excel base template or in an existing referenced file, you should be fine.
