What are macros and why do they need to be enabled?
Macros are little programs 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.
How do you enable macros?
There are a couple of different options for enabling macros in Excel:
Option 1 - Yellow Message Bar on Workbook Open
The first option is to enable macros when the message bar appears when you first open the spreadsheet.
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.
