    100 percent certain. Thanks though. I know when I am insane it can be very easy to overlook something like that.

    OK, I have just gone to MS's support site and found an article that kinda reflects my problem. The workbook is password protected and as such, Excel assumes that since I know the password, it comes from a trusted source. Therefore, not asking to disable macros.
    Is there any other way to open it, given my circumstances with the macros disabled?

    Have you tried holding down the shift key, worked for me. From the open dialog in excel, hold down the shift key, double-click your file, and continue holding the shift key until the file has completed opening. I think this will work.

    Or if holding the SHIFT key while opening doesn't work, you can stop macros while they're executing by smacking CTRL + Pause/Break.

    HTH

    EDIT:: PS, Can you post the link to the MS knowledge base that told you about being a trusted source because you know the password?

    Unfortunately, the CTRL+BREAK kills the open process. I tried that earlier
