As a fulltime developer I oftentimes open files containing VBA and want to be able to run code. At the same time I sometimes want to prevent Workbook_Open event code or an Auto_Open macro from running.
With Excel 97 to 2003, this was simple: hold the shift key when you click “Enable macros”.
With Excel 2007 and 2010 it is less obvious how to do this, holding shift whilst clicking the enable button does not help. In the article mentioned below I have detailed out the exact steps required to prevent these macros from running under all possible circumstances.
Enjoy the read and let me know what you think!!
