I can't seem to replicate this error but it happens at least once a week. I open a file where I created some script. Does not matter if it is an older file or a newer one and I get the dreaded error "Can't find Project or Library". This means that the Reference Library is missing a Module/Tool that it can no longer reference. I scratch my head and wonder for a moment, "I did not make any changes to my tool references so how can this be. To further agitate me When I open VBA Editor and select Tool Reference the sheet does nothing. Won't show me tools and now the code has disappeared. I can see the modules in the project window but the sheet is blank.
So first I have to fix it. Usually, I can fix it by first closing out of all Excel Apps. Then, while holding down Ctrl and clicking on a new Excel app to open, I open Excel in Safe mode. I open the file. Then I go into VBA Editor and select Tools Reference and I can see that one of my files instead of being stored in with the system files it is normally saved to, it has been saved to my C Drive Documents. When I go look there the file is not there. However, if I search for the file in my system files (C:Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VBA) I find it and re-sync it.
But what is crazy to me is how did that file location change in the first place? Has anyone else experienced this issue more than a few times?
I am 100% certain it is nothing in my code causing this to occur.
I think the problem relates to when Excel has a large file or several files open causing it to run at a high PC Utilization rate, Excel begins to act very crazy. When this occurs and I start shutting things down, the next time I re-open the file is when I will notice the file reference error.

So you're running your macro and before your macro ends its procedure, someone opens your reference file as read only, what would happen to the rest of the procedure?
