    I am getting the erorr compile error in hidden module: autoexecnew when I
    open Excel 2007. If I open just the program or if I open the file directly I
    get the same error.

    The only think that changed on my system was enabling folder redirection via
    group policy.

    I enabled the applications data folder to redirect to a file share.
    I have roaming profiles and Folder redirection enabled in my 2003 Ad network.
    This is an XP Pro workstation.

    Before this change I had Roaming profiles with only my docs and desktop
    redirected.

    I am wondering if Office does not like the App data redirection.

    I do not have Adobe PDF maker installed referenced here
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/307410
    Nor do I find the Pdfmaker.dot or Pdfmaker.xla files on my system.

    Do I need to reinstall or repair office now that I changed the folder
    redirection settings?
    I assume this is happening on all my systems, none of my users have
    complained yet.
    I want to be ready if I need to attach 40 workstations to fix this issue.

    Thank you

    I found the pdfmaker.xla file located in my redirected folder.
    Removed -- error gone.
