How to start macros?

Jens 0 Reputation points

I got a new Dell laptop and it runs Windows 11 with Office 365.

I use an Excel that also has macros in it. On other computers, Excel with the macros runs perfectly.

I entered the folder as trustworthy in the trust center and also selected the fourth point in the macro settings.

"Enable VBA macros (not recommended...)"

When I then want to start the macros using the buttons, nothing happens. I can then no longer do anything in Excel. Running it manually via the “Developer Tools” tab doesn’t work either. Excel is also “frozen” here. I then exit via the task manager and close the app there.

Do you have any idea what I can do?

Thanks in advance

    I suggest you try to open VB editor in Excel using Alt + F11 keyboard shortcut.

    I also suggest you try to repair Office application:

    It is also recommended that you check whether the firewall and anti-virus software are enabled, you can disable these and try agian.
