Opening a File and Macro Issues


New Member

I have a file on a corporate network, that uses macros and has an Workbook_Open event.

For months there has been no problem with Enabling Macros on opening (as I only have security set to medium) and Don't Update Links (as there are few links to external files). There has been no change to the code of otherwise.

Recently however Excel is hanging when I try to open this file and eventually I get the Do you wish to recover and email problem to MS dialog box. Excel hangs trying to open this file. Choosing Disable Macros prevent this problem but if I save under another name runs ok with macros enabled. Macros do what they are supposed too.

There are two other users with this same problem with this one file

Any ideas on what to check? I don't think it is the code as has run for a year no problem. My suspect is the server/network but no idea what. I do have other files that use Excel code (but none from memory use Workbook_Open event) so a bit stumped. I have an extensive Personal.xls but that has been the same for months as well.

Any ideas appreciated.
