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.
