Unable to compile certain workbooks


I am unable to compile or protect certain workbooks. I keep getting the error “Please save the Excel workbook as a file first” each time I try to launch Compile to Exe in Ribbon.

I have saved the workbook multiple times and I don’t see how to use Padlock with this workbook. It worked for others.

Thanks for your help.

EDIT - This error occurs for certain files on OneDrive for business, but not all. Problem is solved if the file is saved on local computer.

Yes, that could be the problem, the best is to keep files in a local folder because XLS Padlock will also store its settings files in that folder.
