Macro security settings in Excel 2007? Go to the Office Button and click the Excel Options button. Go to Trust Center --> Trust Center Settings --> Macro Settings. The settings apply to worksheets that are "not in a trusted location." So, you need to set up your trusted locations. You can do that from the same dialog, just choose Trusted Locations in the menu on the left.

You have two missing references - check Tools-References in the VBEditor and uncheck the two 'MISSING:' ones.

Because whenever you use a function or sub in VBA that is not fully qualified with the library to which it belongs, Excel has to check all the supplied references to see if it comes from one of those libraries. If the references are broken (i.e. MISSING), then an error occurs when it tries to check them.
