Personal Work Book is gone

Posted by Robert Whipple on June 12, 2001 10:57 AM

I know I must have somehow deleted it, but my Personal
workbook is nowhere to be found. I had one very important
macro that was contained in my personal workbook.

Anyway to salvage it?

Bob / Zen
Have you tried searching for it ???
It may have inadvertently be placed in another
location. default location is ususally;

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\XLStart
BUT it may also be in

Try serching for it via Find

Good luck

you probably didn't delete - you probably unhid it and then closed it. Should turn up in a Search Files (if Win2K) or a Find Files on your hard drive.
