Before using...Right click on the link, save to your computer, and re-open from your computer!  When prompted, choose to Enable Macros.  If you do not receive this prompt then...Go to Tools-->Macros-->Security, select Medium, click OK, close Excel, and re-open Excel.  Enabling macros with Office 2007:  When you open the GC, you will not be prompted to enable macros.  Instead, when the file opens, you will see a message near the top of your screen that says, “Security Warning  Macros have been Disabled”.  Click on Options, Enable this Content, and OK.  Sometimes this message disappears as you work with Excel so it is a good idea to do this when you begin working; otherwise, you may have to exit the GC and re-open to get the message.
