Why is my file identified as virus

For a niche community in the Netherlands I created an Excel file to make referee assessments. The file contains a number of macro's to make new worksheets and to email pdf copies of worksheets to the referees and the federation. The macro's have been tested to work on both Windows (Excel 2003 and upwards and Outlook) and Mac (Excel 2011 and Outlook or Apple Mail). However, on Windows, the file is identified as a virus by the McAfee virusscanner. As far as I know other virusscanners do not.

Any suggestions on how to prevent this situation?

The latest version of the file has been attached. It is in Dutch though and Macro's do not have much comments in them.

Thanks, Bas

There are steps you can take outlined here:

Is this identified as an Artemis detection?  If so can you post the detection number?
