I have searched high and low for a solution for this problem.
A user has a spreadsheet that is generated from a link to a server that our domain does not host. When that is received by the user, she cannot edit the file.
I have attempted to use all the tricks that I know to edit the file under options and trust center.
All the warnings, are trust center warnings. I cannot determine why this spreadsheet give so many warnings. It is a fairly simple spreadsheet with simple formulas.

I have been searching on line with google and at MS for a few months and still have not had any luck with this document. This document is generated once a month. We get the same error monthly.

Any ideas, thank you.
Don

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.

Is the file password protected?
Did you have to open it as Read Only?

No generated by an application. Only, choice is to enable editing, but that will not work.
Thanks Don

Yes, the application that builds the spreadsheet is applying the protection. I have asked the user that gets the spreadsheet to call the company, but she has not or will not do that. So as IT I have to attempt to bypass the protection. So I have spent any spare time trying to determine the protection on a program that I do not use or have access to use or run.
Job security, maybe.
Again, thanks Don

I believe it is against this forum's rules to assist with breaching security
