Excel Security Note

Excel 2003 defaults to High Security level for Macros within Excel workbooks.
This workbook contains code (macros) to perform many functions.  Unless macros are enabled, those functions will not be available.

While at High Security, you cannot enable macros.  To fix this, and still maintain control over running code in workbooks, I recommend lowering your Macro Security Level to Medium (don't go to LOW - that's unsafe).  Here is how to change the Security Level in Excel 2003:

Open Excel and this workbook.  Close the initial warning window telling you that you cannot enable macros.

From the Menu bar (where words like File, Edit, etc appear) choose:

Tools
Macro
(from the list that appears)
Security (from the fly-out list that appears)
Choose Medium on the Security tab of the window that pops up.

Close the Excel workbook and re-open it.  At this time you should get a warning that the workbook contains macros, that they are potentially harmful and it asks you whether you want to Enable or Disable them.  Choose Enable to get full functionality in this workbook.
