Excel macros not enabled

So I am struggling through the BTDF, I have opened up the xml Settings spreadsheet. It did not ask me if I wanted to enable macros. And when I press CTRL-W, the page blanks out, and nothing happens.

I am using Excel 2007.


I can't find anyone else who has had a problem. I have tried it on the server that I am building the process on, along with the local machine I send emails from, with the same behavior.

I've seen the Ctrl-W keystroke mentioned a couple of times lately, and I'm not sure why.  Maybe some inaccurate third-party blogs.  It doesn't work because it doesn't exist.  All you need to do is put your settings into the spreadsheet (SettingsFileGenerator.xml) and save it.  When you deploy, the settings files will be exported.

Have you looked at the sample apps included with the Deployment Framework?  In your case, the BasicMasterBindings sample demonstrates the use of the spreadsheet.
