FIX: Excel Blocking Macros in DB File?

Recommended Posts

Issue: You have Macros enabled in Excel, but when you try and open Draft Buddy you get an alert: "SECURITY RISK Microsoft has blocked macros from running because the source of this file is untrusted." This is typically affecting folks with newer Windows machines and Office 365 users.


1. Close Excel and navigate to the folder where your Draft Buddy file is stored.
2. Right-click on your DB file and select "Properties"
3. At the bottom, check the box that says "Unblock" and then click "OK".

Mike Mac has done a nice video on this in more detail...
