Lately when I open Excel I'm hit with the Alert message screenshotted below. I have no idea what it's referring to but when I click "Ok" I can then proceed to use the app like normal. So I'd really like to just get rid of this alert. Any idea how I can make that happen?

Appreciate any help!

@mesmrc Seems you are trying to load an Add-in that no longer exists in the place where Excel expects to find it.

@Riny_van_Eekelen any idea how I get rid of it?

@mesmrc I guess you need to deactivate the add-in if you don't need it anymore. Look on the Developer ribbon under Add-ins and see if your find "SaveAsAdobePDF" there. Then remove it. Or find the file mentioned in the error message and place it back in the exact location where Excel expects to find it.
