Hi 

I recently recorded a large macro and saved my file afterwards. The file looks normal in file manager and appears to open, but the cells are not visible and toolbars are visible but not working.  Instead of cells I see grey screen under the toolbar.  

Help!

SOLVED.  Thanks to anyone who looked at this.  Somehow the file had hidden workbook - I went to View toolbar and clicked Unhide.
