Excel files exported from BIOPAC software open in Excel ‘Protected View’
Issue: Excel files generated by AcqKnowledge or Biopac Student Lab open with ‘Protected View’ in Excel.
Resolution: (Depending on the IT policies in place, you may require administrator privileges to implement this.)
- Launch Excel
- Choose File > Options
- Click ‘Trust Center’
- Click the Trust Center Settings button in the right-hand panel.
- Click on ‘File Block Settings’ and disable (un-check) the box next to Excel 2 Worksheets.
- Click OK on all open dialogs to close them.
Next time you generate an Excel file from AcqKnowledge or BSL it will open normally, without protected view.
