Hello,

 

I am busy trying to enable macros in Excel, and I can't seem to get solver turned on.

 

The following message keeps popping up:

 

Microsoft cannot access the file... There are several possible reasons:

 

- The file name or path does not exist.

- The file is being used by another program.

- The workbook you are trying to save has the same name as a currently open workbook.

 

Any help in the immediate future will be greatly appreciated.

With your permission, if I can recommend you, add a file (without sensitive data) to your project.

Explain your plans in relation to this file.

So you can get a solution that is tailored to your needs much faster.

At the same time, it is much easier for someone who wants to help to understand the subject.

A win-win situation for everyone.

Please no Picture, even if it is said that a picture can say a thousand words, it is certainly not in the case of Excel, on the contrary in some cases.

 

* Knowing the operating system would also be an advantage (maybe).

 

Thank you for your understanding and patience
