Learn how to review the readiness report results.
- [Instructor] So in the previous video, we created a readiness report and we saved that report to C: Users Administrator Documents. You can see right here that the report is in Excel format so let's go ahead and take a look at what the report looks like. I'll go ahead and open this up. Now there are two things that you need to know about this report. First of all, it depends very heavily on the use of macros. So in order to be able to use the report, you're going to have to enable content. You can see that we have a warning for that right here and we can enable that content just by clicking the enable content button up at the top and it takes a few minutes to get the report ready once you've clicked that button. So while I'm waiting on that, I'll tell you about the other thing that you need to know and that is that this particular report focuses heavily on the use of VBA within your Office documents, so it's going to check for the existence of VBA code and see if there's anything that is going to cause problems with future versions of Office. So it looks like the report is ready to use and by default, we're looking at the overview tab. You can see that we have a few tabs down here at the bottom of the screen and if I scroll down a little bit, we can see a summary, we can see that none of our documents have macros in this case, none have VBA macros and there weren't any documents that we weren't able to analyze. There could be documents that are unable to be analyzed if, for example, documents are password protected. So let's take a look at the VBA overview tab. Now we don't have any documents containing VBA code, but if we did, this might be a good place to check. When I click on that tab, we see some charts related to VBA usage within our documents. In this case, we can see that none of our documents have VBA, so we're in good shape. But what if our documents did have VBA? Well, in that case, what I would recommend doing is taking a look at the VBA remediation tab, which you can see right here. The remediation tab contains a proposed changes column, so this is where you would go to find out if there were any issues with your documents and what Microsoft recommends doing to address those issues before you move forward with an Office upgrade. So that's how you can use the readiness report to make sure that your documents are ready for an Office upgrade.
