File/Option/Trust Center/Trust Center Settings.../
Macro Setting/Enable all macros (...)

Save/close/reopen

are steps I follow but when I click on a button with a macro, it says:

'Cannot run the macro 'FileDNA!Macro2'. The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled.

Question: What can I do to make this macro work.

FYI, the macro worked fine when I first created it. I save the workbook. Now I have reopened the file but it is no longer working.

Can you run the macro manually from the macros dialog?

Hi Roy,

You are very quick. After I posted the question, to make sure the macro is still there, I checked it but it wasn't. I need to recreate it. I don't know what must have happened to it?

Probably the button points to a macro in a closed workbook.
Right click the button, attach macro, and see what is displayed.
And attach the button to the macro in the active workbook.

After I created the macro again, it worked. But, after I saved/closed/reopened the macro was not there.

Question: Why am I loosing the macro?

I see, when I save the macro, it gives me yes/no/cancel options.

I have been clicking on yes option but I had to click on No option to keep the macro. But with No option it is asking me to: "choose a macro-enabled file type in the file type list."

What all these instruction mean?

Is it asking me to have a file like myMacros.??? with some specific extension where this file is also macro-enabled?

You have to save the workbook with macros.
Use Save as, second option.
