Warning Msg When saving Excel file


When saving file I get the following warning:

"Be careful! Parts of your document may include personal information that can't be removed by the Document Inspector.

How can I remove this and what is in my file that is causing this problem?

If you don't normally get that but you've downlaoded/modfoed a file downloaded for the internet say, go File on the ribbon, then Options/Trust Center/Trust Center Settings/ Privacy Options  then un-check the check the box that "Remove personal information from file properties on save".

If Document Inspector has been run on a document previoiusly, you may need to go File/Info then under Inspect Workbook, click "Allow this information to be saved with the file".

Hope this works for you.



Thank you!
