Macros are code/scripts that run within Excel that help automate common tasks, navigation, data crunching and reporting that operate behind the scenes of the spreadsheet. Macros are used throughout the House Flipping Spreadsheet and in order for them to operate, they need to be enabled.
Typically, when you open a Macro-Enabled Workbook, a yellow message bar will appear at the top of the spreadsheet.
On the message bar click, Enable Content which will enable the macros within the House Flipping Spreadsheet.
