I am experiencing a problem with my Microsoft Excel. Whenever I try starting a macro in an existing spread sheet, I encounter an error message saying “It appears that you have opened it using Internet Explorer.
Please download the spread sheet to your computer and open it using Excel”. It somehow worked after a long time but then it suddenly stopped working again.
I already tried looking at the file associations and I thought I saw something wrong but I still could not correct it.
I hope you’ll help me deal with this problem. Thank you.
How to access macro in excel?
Are there changes that you have made off late using the visual basic editor, because they might be the changes are causing the error to occur. You may have created some module in using the microsoft excel macro that is meant to export the data to internet explorer and thus the problem that you are receiving.
Otherwise just open the visual basic editor by pressing ALT+ F11 on the keyboard and check all the modules that you have created using the macro, if there are some you might suspect to be causing the problem, just delete them, and then close the VBA editor and then restart excel.
Hope this helps.
