Microsoft Office Documet unable to perform for cotaining custom code



“Trusted Location” is a filtering method that MS Office products use to identify safe or unsafe file types or file locations. As you don’t have the folder listed inside your “Trusted locations”, you’re having such error. In this case, you can’t open the file.

The easiest way is to copy the file from there and paste it to another place which is trusted.

This problem also can be solved by adding the location to your “Trusted locations” list.

  1. Open the program that associates with the file type.
  2. From the “Microsoft Office” button, click “<software_name> Options”.
    Here, software_name indicates the program you’re using, for example, PowerPoint, Excel, Access etc.
  3. From the left panel, click “Trust Center”.
  4. Find out the button “Trust Center Settings” and click it.
  5. Click “Trusted Locations”.
  6. Check the box saying “Allow trusted locations on my network (not recommended)”.
  7. Click “Add new location”.
  8. In the “Path” box, type the folder path you wish to add to trusted location list.
  9. Click “OK”.

Now you won’t have to be bothered with such trusted location error.
