How to Save the Workbook Containing VBA Code

Date:2020-11-6 Author:Sandra

Starting from the 2007 version of the office, when saving a workbook containing VBA code for the first time, Excel will prompt “cannot be saved in macro-free workbooks”.

This is because the workbook containing VBA code must be saved as a macro-enabled workbook type. Excel provides an xlsm type workbook for this purpose, which is called “macro-enabled workbook”.
