I have a personal.xlsb file with a couple macros in it (no start up macros), and Excel won't open files I'm trying to click on to open but rather just opens excel to the hidden personal.xlsb sheet and never opened my desired file.

I'm sure it must be a bug, is there anything besides deleting the personal.xlsb file I could do?

The security settings are pretty much wide open in the trust centre.

Thanks,

Rob.
