What does custom number format of ;;; mean?
Three semi-colons will hide the value in the cell. Although most people use white font instead.

Secutiry level "Medium" asks you whether to run the macro or not. If it is set to "High", then there is no prompting and the macro will not be executed.
Changing the settings to "Low" will run the macros without your permission, but not at all a good habit.

Maybe all of your other files' macros are signed by a trusted source's digital signature? That would also bypass the enable macros screen if security is set to medium...
