    Pesky dialog box "microsoft has identified a potential security"


    Hi,
    I'm getting this pesky dialog box when I open certain documents in Word 2016.

    I've tried Adding a trusted location in Trust Center, didn't work.
    I also tried the options under Macro Settings, didn't work.

    Any way to get rid of this?
    Any help much appreciated.

    This appears to be a recent problem, judging by the dates of Google hits for that message. This one may be of help...

    It worked!,

    Interesting that when I downgraded it this way and changed a document in my Windows PC, it transferred through Dropbox and the issue was also fixed in my Mac.
    Super thanks.
