I wrote a long macro in an excel document. I saved it and closed it. Now, when I open the document it just hour glasses. I have tried to open in on several computers and the same issue. Is the file corrupt, or is the macro too long that it cannot process it? If so, is there any possible way of retrieving the data? It took me 4 hours to write ;x Help please I beg you.

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

Does it have event code like Workbook_Open that runs when you open the file? If so try holding down the Shift key when opening it to disable the code.

Not still hour glasses. There is an Workbook_Open macro in the spreadsheet. But, I don't have it scheduled to run upon opening. It only will run if I manually run it or select the button to run it. I tried the shift option and no go. Any other ideas?
