I have an excel file that i have been sharing with multiple users that has some simple macros that have been working fine. The macros still work fine for me whn i open the file, but anyone I share it with, the macros don't run. this is a new problem. Can't seem to solve it. Thanks!

Follow up. this is an xlsm file and it looks like it's working in 2013 but not 2010. I wonder if an MS update to 2013 broke the 2010 being able to run the macro?

Well I have another 2013 machine it's not working on so it doesn't seem to be that. I added another command button and put the active-x vba code on it and it won't work either. But oddly I have one laptop, also 2013, that does work. Very odd!

OK. I have now narrowed it down to it works under my network login but not others, so what would I need to fix there? Thanks!
