Could not open macro storage error


Hi David,
The error is because you are using the templates that are downloaded from an internet location.
There are built-in protection in advanced versions of Office. When the document is detected of having originated from an internet source,office opens the document in the ‘Read only’ mode to protect against potential threats. This mode is ‘Protected View’.
To remove the ‘Protected View’ mode from the report template, navigate for the saved template and open it.
Click on the ‘Enable Editing’ button on the upper right corner of the document.
Now, it can run effectively without reflecting the error on the system.
