Game Embedded In Excel 2007 Won't Play

I received an email with an excel attachment. The excel spreadsheet contained one of those embedded games. I am running Windows Vista and Office 2007. I am not able to play this game. None of the links are active (I cannot click on "Play", etc). I've enabled macros but the problem persists. How do I get around this so that I can play the game?
Thnx for your help.

Re: Game Embedded In Excel 2007 Won't Play

You are better off not playing the game as they usually contain some form of malware.

To possibly infect yourself you by playing the game will need to change the security settings for macros in excel. This is usually located in the Tools menu. Set it for the least restrictive setting, but you have been warned, you will be infected with malware. If not with this game then in the near future.

Why does Polaris Office 5 app close when I click on the excel tab to open a file?

First step is to go to settings then apps, select Polaris app and then touch "clear data" and "clear cache". Next check to see if your app is working correctly, if not, uninstall and then reinstall the app. If it is a paid for app, Google play store will know, also doing an uninstall and install should not delete any saved files you have created previously.
Hope this helps

Who invented microsoft excel/

Excel is a spreadsheet developed by Microsoft but is by no means the first spreadsheet.

The very first spreadsheet was developed (or invented) by Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston called VisiCalc. VisiCalc was a spreadsheet written to operate on the Apple II computer and was released in 1979. The program was sold to Lotus who developed Lotus 123 from the VisiCalc principle. Lotus 123 was released in 1983.

Excel, first released in 1987, is a development of the early spreadsheets and therefore cannot strictly be classified as an invention. Excel is far more powerful than VisiCalc but that is also a result of development over the years that Microsoft have been working on the product, and the increase in computing power.

Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston never patented the product because software patents were almost unheard of in the 70s.

    Excel 2007: number formatting


    Let me give you some basic info first. Information within a cell is discreet. You can add to it...the $ sign as an example...with functions (actual code which equals a program) embedded in Excel or you can type it in.....but you would have to create an actual program to do what you would like to do.

    I don't use your version of Excel but I am extremely confident you cannot do what you would like to do. Sorry....Tango.
