Hello, and thanks in advance for any support!

Using Office 97 Excel
Vista Home operating system

Using a brand new worksheet, containing no macros or formulas at all -

I select Tools--->Macro--->Record New Macro--->OK

Result = "Unable to Record."

The error persisted after reinstalling excel.

Tools--->Options--->General--->Macro Virus Protection is set to OFF.

Confounded!

I Googled "excel 97 vista unable to record macro" and got a few hits that might be useful for you. I suggest you try the same.

Edit: Mind you, I'd say it's definitely time to upgrade from Excel 97!!

thanks Peter, I already spent 60-90 minutes googling just that. Almost all the postings are either off-point, or describe errors from formulas exceeding 255 characters; this is no help at all - per my earlier message, my worksheet is devoid of content, including macros.

Appreciate any other ideas.

ps Office 97 has worked perfectly for me 12 years - until Vista.
