We can disable this function by adding a registry entry.

  1. Press the Windows Key + R to open the Run dialog and type regedit
  2. Locate the key for your copy of Excel, using the version number for your copy. For example, version 12.0 shown is for Office 2008.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Excel\Security\

  3. Add the key (Edit, New, Key) under Security if it doesn't exist:

    FileValidation

  4. Under FileValidation, add a new value (Edit, New, DWORD (32-bit) Value) and make the name Enableon load
  5. The new value is left as 00000000.
  6. Exit the registry editor (File, Exit).
  7. This change will take effect after the next reboot.
