Why can't I record a macro on a MAC

Hi,

I want to install some macros on a client's MAC.  He is at a remote location to me so I'm trying to talk him through the installation process.

After a couple of false starts I wanted to try to just record a macro into the Personal Macro Workbook.

1) Tools - Macro - Record New Macro
2) Type in a name, Save in the Personal Macro Workbook, click OK.

and he gets a message "Can't Record Macro".

Does anyone know what I need to check?

Try saving the workbook as a macro-enabled workbook before creating any macros. Then close the now macro-enabled workbook and then re-open it.

Hi Strung,

Yeah, tried that. I think we'll have to reinstall Office.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers

I think that the software needs reinstallation.
