There are 2 possible problems which users may experience when downloading the tax calculator:
Some users may receive an error message when they open the file and attempt to remove the 'protected status' applied by Windows to downloaded workbooks (these are assumed to be untrusted so don't automatically run macro code). The error messages may refer to 'Activate method of workbook failed' and 'Object variable not set'. This is a problem caused by the 'period of transition' from 'protected workbook' to 'trusted workbook'.
To fix this:
Close the error messages and save the workbook to your computer. This will make the workbook 'more trusted' and the transition problem will be eliminated the next time you open it.
I have received a report that some Internet Explorer users may be experiencing problems trying to download the files (Update: this problem possibly only applies to the Excel 2007 version)- Internet Explorer may attempt to download the workbook as an unusable zip file.
To fix this:
Click on the file. You will be asked whether you want to 'Open' or 'Save' the file. Choose 'Save'.
A 'Save' dialog box will appear. Ensure that you use the following settings for file type and the XLSM extension as per this image:
Press 'Save'. The file will be downloaded by Excel (this may take a few minutes)
