    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.
