Microsoft Excel Security Notice

Hello,

I have a customer getting the attached security notice in Excel.  

Would someone advise what that means?  

Also, what are the buttons "trust all from publisher" or "Enable Macros" represents?

If I want to setup a global setting to address this using Active Directory Group policy, do you know which location I should look at?  

Thanks

If you are sure that the code is safe then choose enable macros, Excel should remember that choice and not ask again.

Enable macro is for the current session only and you will be prompted for this security message when you open the file again.

You can change the GPO for VBA macro but it is not a good idea as ransomware are spread via VBA macro also and an alert is better.

Jackie in the newer version what I stated is correct, I can't remember when it was introduced but it may have been Office 2013.
