Document Control Template Installation Guide

< Back to Help menu

The Document Control Template is a macro-enabled Excel workbook. Therefore, it is simple to use and does not normally require administrator privileges to install and use.

In 2022, Microsoft introduced security settings to automatically blocks all macro-enabled workbooks downloaded from the internet. Therefore, the installation steps below are standard for all downloaded macro-enabled workbooks.
