I am unable to record a macro on another employee's system, however have no issues on mine. We are using Excel 2013.  His Trust Center is set up exactly like mine.  I get several steps into recording, and then I continually get a security warning stating Macros have been Disabled.  What is very strange is I was successful in recording and running a very short test macro.  I am getting the disabled warning on a macro that is somewhat bigger, but nothing I would call complicated.  Simply adding some formulas, copying them, and moving to blank cells.

What happens if you first start Excel in safe mode (hold the control key while launching Excel)?
