Hi Experts !

I'm facing problems with a sheet correctly opened in Excel 2003 that simply doesn't work at Excel 2007 - it locks and doesn't allow any operation that runs in macros.

Could you point a solution ?

Thanks in advance !

That's interesting.  I've opened the file in Excel 2007 and clicked the buttons - seems to work.

Have you placed this file in a trusted location, to ensure Excel 2007 will allow the macros to run?

Hello

Did you tried by to push "Excluir"  button that means "delete" the line ?
( before you must to place cursor at "B" column )

It simply doesn't work... it looks locked

Yes - its working for me.

Here's this version saved as a .xlsm in 2007...

As you can see in the spreadsheet, several rows deleted as a result fo the Excluir macro.

That's right .

I've put it at drive C: and it still doesn't work here
Maybe it's a matter of reinstall or repair  Excel
What do you think about it  ?

Make sure you can run macros from other workbooks in the same directory.  Doesn't matter if its on drive C:  if it is not in a trusted location.

Have someone else try the file out at your location before you reinstall Excel.
