This happened after I installed MySQL for Excel. Everything works fine with the installation and I have this add-in in my Excel workbook. And my workbook seems ok, all VBA code is there. But when I save now, I have to change every time from the default xlsx to xlsm. Before the installation the default was always xlsm. Why has this changed, and should I be worried?

Files with VBA in them have to be saved as xlsm (Macro Enabled Workbook).

To change the default file format option, go to File > Options

In the Left Hand Pane choose the Save Heading and then at the top of the right hand pane there is a drop-down for setting the default file format.
