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,)

Howdy.

What version of Excel? Have you been able to record in the past? have you made changes to MS Office or the Operating System?

Is the workbook shared?

Limitations of shared workbooks

Some features of Microsoft Excel are not available when you use a shared workbook. If you need to use these features, do so before you share the workbook, or remove the workbook from shared use.

Macros

Write, change, view, record, or assign macros. However, you can record operations in a shared workbook into a macro stored in another workbook that isn't shared. In a shared workbook, you can run macros that were created before you shared the workbook; although if you run a macro that includes an unavailable operation, the macro stops running when it reaches the unavailable operation.

When I've gotten that message in the past, I continued to record and it did what it should, despite what it said.

When you stop recording and goto the VBE, do you get any code?
