Maybe this is obvious..., but I have develped 200-300 lines of code which were stored by default in modules of my Personal Macro Workbook. I want to give the spreadsheets that used this code to someone else...

The code, as it is, is in the hidden 'default workbook'. How can I make it function on anothers's PC and still have it work on mine???

Thanks!

The easiest way would be to go to your

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART

folder (when excel is closed), and just send them that personal.xls file. tell them to put it in the same place, and now it's their file too!

If they have macros they want to keep already in their personal.xls file, you could just export the modules by right clicking/export and then just send them the exported files for them to import
