I have a workbook containing 2 userforms and 2 modules of VBA code (Excel97).  It now crashes Excel when I go into the Visual Basic Editor and I can't get to my code..  but it does run the forms and the code via an AutoOpen macro..  I have tried Excel Recovery version 1 but it only recovers the AutoOpen macro....  

Help...  Delboy

Try holding down the shift key when you open the workbook.  This should prevent the macro from running.  That way you ahould be able to get into the workbook and fix the problem.

Commented:
This only stops the AutoOpen macro, but still cannot get into the visual basic editor without crashing once in the workbook...

Delboy,

If you will send the file to me, I'll take a look at it and see if I can get to your code. You can send the file to shalbe@san.rr.com

Delboy,

What happens when it crashes?

Author

Commented:
It crashes Excel altogether...

Commented:
Hi,

Could you send the file to me as well please.  I think I can get at the code only using a handle.

Have you tried copying the workbook to a new file to see if the problem persists?  What if you try getting at the code through the Tools-Macro-Macros menu option?  Do you get the same behavior?  Can you delete macros from this spot?  Can you access the code editor in other workbooks?

Commented:
Everything you have just said, I have done to no avail...nice try though awd...  copying to a new workbook brings the problem with it, going through the Tools etc option has the same results, cannot delete macros .. and can go into the editor in other workbooks..
