Part families and excels with macros

So ive been trying to create a part family from an excel spreadsheet with macros. But everytime I save the solidworks part after setting up the part family, the original excel file becomes unreadable unless you open it in SolidWorks from the part. I checked the "link to file" box, I am using excel 2016 and solidworks 2018. Is there any way to make this work so I can modify the excel with the macros in and out of solidworks, or is it a bug with no workaround?
