In Enterprise Performance Foundation Administrator (FEM), when trying to import dimension members using the "Create from Spreadsheet" button located at "Configuration Rules" > "Dimension" > "Members", the following error occurs when you open WebADI.xls:

Run-time error '1004':

Method 'VBProject' of object '_Workbook' failed

You did select the "Enable Macros" button when opening the spreadsheet.  Additionally, in Excel 2003, if you go to "Tools" > "Macro" > "Security...", the Security Level is "Medium".  For Excel 2007, you have updated the Internet Explorer Security Settings (Security > Internet > Custom Level...) to set the Scripting option "Allow status bar updates via script" to "Enable".
