For some reason i cannot see any of my previously saved macros, the macro
window is empty. Also i am trying to record a new macro in the Personal Macro
Workbook. and i get the following error:

"Personal Macro Workbook in the startup folder must stay open for recording"
"Unable to record"

I need some help please!

Saved from a previous post:

If you created a personal.xls workbook and it's not opening, maybe...

xl2002+ has the abililty to quarantine what it thinks are bad workbooks.

They can keep track of them so that it doesn't even try to open them.

If you look under Help|About MS Excel, you'll see a button called: "Disabled

Check under there to see if it's marked not to open. You can enable it there,

If the workbook is really bad, you may want to delete that copy and put a copy
of your backup version into your XLStart folder.

(If you don't have a backup, take the time now and create one.)
