Root Cause

The issue was introduced by Microsoft security update for Excel 2010, released on July 12, 2016 (KB3115322). This update causes Excel 2010 to silently block the loading of untrusted HTML files.


Update KB3115476 for Microsoft Excel 2010, which was released on August 9, 2016, addresses the issue.
