Well, the issue is related to the high-security level and to fix the issue and a key to the registry that allows Excel to run XLM macros when the macro security level is set to High.

Follow the steps to do so:

Please note: It is recommended to back up your system as manipulating the registry Editor is quite risky, a small mistake can cause a serious problem and you might need to reinstall your operating system.

  1. Click Start > click Run. Then, in the Open box, type regedit. Click OK.
  2. Now, in the left pane, click the plus signs (+) to the left of the following items (in order): 


3.       And on the Edit menu > point to New, > click Key > type Security > ENTER. 

4.       Next, on the Edit menu > point to New > click DWORD Value. 

5.       Type XLM > hit ENTER > double-click XLM. 

6.       Now, type 1 in the Value box > click OK. 

7.       Click Exit on the Registry menu.
