I have had a look online and it appears that this tablet is not RT so I think the problem is that you are opening the file in Excel Online which does not support macros. You should be able to transfer the file to the tablet and open it locally to solve this issue

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I don't work on the mobile platform much, but in general you need to insure the file is in a Trusted Location. You can do that in several ways. If you have Excel installed on the table (which you obviously do), then you can use the Excel menus to do that. With the workbook open:

1. Click File
2. Click Trust Center
3. Click Trust Center Settings
4. Click Trusted Locations
5. Click Add New Location
6. Browse to the location where your workbook is stored on the tablet
7. If needed, check the "Subfolders of this location are also trusted"
8. Click OK
9. Close the Option menu
10. Close the Workbook

Now reopen the workbook and your macros should be enabled.

Do you mean that you added the location of the file on the Tablet to a Trusted Location, and that did not work?

Try creating a new workbook in the same location, and add a button to it. Does that button work?

If it does, then you may have issues with the workbook and may need to recreate it.
