Q: I have downloaded and opened the Risk Assessment Tool. On the "Introduction" tab, I clicked the "I Accept" button to begin using the tool, but I received an error message stating that Excel "Cannot run the macro," which is preventing me from accessing other sheets. How can I resolve this issue?
A: Before use of the tool can begin, a user must click the "Enable Content" button, which is embedded in a yellow security warning ribbon below the toolbar at the top of the screen (see where red arrow is pointing below).
Q: I've entered the Model Assumptions information, including for schedule, revenue and cost according to the preliminary estimates for my project. When I navigate to the Risk Register, the Risk Register Quantitative Risk Assessment Values do not reflect my inputs. What am I doing wrong?
A: With the exception of daily delay costs, the model assumptions are for reference only. You must re-populate the Quantitative Risk Assessment values to successfully complete the Risk Assessment process.
Q: I've tried adding rows to the Risk Register by copying the formulas into rows below the 19 risk rows provided, but when I try running the simulation I get a "compile error" message (see below).
A: The Risk Register is designed to model up to a maximum of 19 risks. Given that only medium, high, and very high risks are quantified, consider replacing lower-rated risks with higher-rated risks that require quantification (rather than adding in rows for significant risks)
