    Hyperlink an Excel Template File

    Afternoon all,

    I have an excel document which holds instructions and links to various templates I have designed.

    For some reason, the hyperlinks to the excel files that are saved as templates (.xltm & .xltx) will not open.

    I firstly get a message saying

    "Opening (filepath.xltx)
    Some files can contain viruses or otherwise be harmful to your computer.
    It is important to be certain that this file is from a trustworthy source.
    Would you like to open this file?"

    Naturally I click yes and the message disappears and the circle just spins and spins and spins and nothing happens.

    I have created the hyperlink directly from the file so there is 100% nothing wrong with the file path, anyone any ideas what could be causing this and how to resolve it?

    Many Thanks
    Dan
