The next thing you need to do is to click on Enable all macros under Macros settings.

In the above procedure, we have been able to enable macro settings. The next thing is now to edit macros.

But before we edit macros, we first need to view the macros. To do this, we simply need to click on the Developer tab and the under the Code group, click Macros. You will then be able to view macros.
