I created a new macro and stored it in the personal macro workbook. When I open the XLSTART folder I see the personal.xlsb file with the correct time stamp. But when I shut down excel and reopen it the personal.xlsb does not load and so when I go to run a macro from it excel does not show it as being available. If I shut down excel, then double click on the personal.xlsb file it opens excel and I now see the macros. So what has me stumped is why it is not automatically loading when I start up excel. I have checked all the setting and all macros are enabled, etc.
