Support for Excel file Types (xlsm)

Summary

Support for Excel file Types (xlsm)

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.0

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

Filemaker supports importing xls or xlsx file types. xls files may or may not contain macros, however, xlsx files must be macro-free to be saved in that format. All my previous imports into Filemaker have had macros so that means that I now have to (inconveniently) save two versions of a file, one in xlsx and one in xlsm. If Filemaker could import xls files with macros in the file, why couldn't it import xlsm files? I don't think this would be a big fix, please consider adding xlsm file import types to the next update of Filemaker.

Workaround

Save files in multiple formats.
