How to Get Macros from an Excel File in Go

Developing and enabling macros within Excel can assist in creating a more efficient workflow for simple, repeated tasks. While these macros are beneficial when functioning properly, they can pose a potential issue if the file is received from an external source. To ensure that the macros contained in a spreadsheet are safe prior to enabling them, you can use the following API in Go to get macro information from a single XLSX file.

To call the function, input your Excel file and API key into the below example code:

package main
