Check If You Can Run Excel Macros on Your Computer

Check that Matching_Items_from_Overlapping_Lists will work on your computer.


To provide a free check that you can run Excel macros before buying the tool to Match Items from Overlapping Lists.

We would hate you to buy the tool Matching_Items_from_Overlapping_Lists, only to find that your IT department has disabled the functionality in Excel that you need in order to run it.
So we provide this free tool for you to check whether you have the capability to run macros.
If not, it is possible that you can yourself change the functionality - see the sheet Running_Macros in the file here.
If not, then you will need to contact your IT department to ask them whether they will change the settings.

Corporate IT departments are understandably concerned about the potential for macros in both Word and Excel to stray beyond their parameters and cause harm.
That is technically possible, but our macros confine themselves to doing just what they say.
o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o -o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o - o

1 Excel macro file

Excel on PC, not Mac
Excel 2010 onwards, although if you are running Excel2010 it is no longer supported, and potentially vulnerable to hacking, so you should really be on Excel 2013 or later.
