    Personal Macro Workbook in Windows/Office 2007 does not open when Excel is opened

    Personal.xlsb will not open when I start Excel, neither from the shortcut on the taskbar nor from the Startup menu. I've attempted to record a macro and save to the Personal workbook, but I get the following message: "Personal Macro Workbook in the startup folder must stay open for recording" and then I get the next message that reads "Unable to record macro." the Personal.xlsb is in the correct location of:

    C:\Users\Rachel\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART

    any thoughts?

    thank you,
    Rachel

    If you look in the Addins section of Excel Options, is it listed in the 'Disabled application addins' section at the bottom of the list? Also, do you only have one personal.xlsb?
    Good luck.

    Personally I would create an addin. The personal workbook should be created when you record a macro & choose to store it there
    Hope that helps.

    Thank you, yes, it was disabled in the add-ins. That fixed it.
