Hi!

How do I make sure that the user clicks "Enable Macros" when Excel Starts-up? Otherwise, none of my Macros work!

Thank!! :oops:

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)

You cannot. This would effectively bypass the security.

You can, however, display a splash screen that informs users that the workbook will not function correctly if they do not close the book & reopen with macros enabled.

Try this free example from Dave Hawley

Hope it helps
