"Grant Access" in Excel 2016 February 08, 2017, 07:15:33 PM At my new job, we are doing a lot of variable data for mailing using the merge features of Publisher and InDesign. Yuck, I know. When we launch our Excel files, we get this button that we have to press that says, "Grant Access," and when we do, it denies it anyway and we an't get in. On Sierra for Mac. No such issues on the Windows side. Any ideas how to disable this feature?
