hi experts,

 I have an excel expense report that i'm trying to save and I get this pop up with the following and i'm not sure what it means or what to do.

the following features cannot be saved in macro-free workbooks:
to save the file with these features, click NO, and then choose a macro-enabled file type in the file type list.
to continue saving as macro-free workbook, click yes.

The workbook has a macro in it and is asking you if you want to remove the macro and save it as a regular .xlsx file. If you want to retain the macro's save it as an .xslm file.

I’ve tried to save it already in .xlsm format and others but it still didn’t let me save or submit.
