In Excel 2007, I get this error when I try to run a script a friend posted to the web. I have heard of no one else having trouble.

Any ideas what might be going on here?

Sounds like there's probably something incorrect with that specific script in your specific environment... – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Apr 28 '11 at 15:25
Very specific... – user72923 Apr 28 '11 at 15:41

Check your folder options for the .xlsm extension. That's used by Excel 2007 to indicate a macro-enabled workbook. If you have an earlier version of Office (or none at all), it may not be set. You may need to install the compatibility pack, re-install or repair Office 2007, or change the folder options.
