I replaced my Personal.xlsb with another Personal.xlsm stored at C:\Users\cjimmerson\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART and now when I open Excel a new workbook does not automatically open.

I tried placing book.xltx at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\XLSTART,
but Excel still doesn't open a new workbook at startup.

any ideas on why my Excel doesn't open a new workbook at startup?

Using Excel 2010, Windows Vista

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

Got it figured out. The Personal.xlsm should only have the extention .xls or xlsb. I guest the macro enabled workbook disables the opening of a new workbook not matter what.
