Can't run macro in Excel 07 after upgrading from 03

Since upgrading from excel 03 to 07 I'm now unable to run a macro in a workbook.

I get the error when attempting to run it -

Cannot run the macro "workbookname.xls'!Sheet1.ParseComments'.  The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled.

I have macros enabled, and the trust access to VBA project object model enabled.  I also have the vba applications installed that come with the office 07 setup.

It was working fine before the upgrade to 07.

Any help would be good, ta.

In Excel 2007, macro-enabled workbooks must be saved as .xlsm
Is it still .xls or .xlsx?

When you open the Excel 2003 file and save as a 2007 file, save as "Excel Macro-Enabled Workbook (*.xlsm). Otherwise, all macro will be removed in .xlsx format.

Is the Macro actually in "this" workbook?
If you open the xls, then hit Alt-F11 and click on various sheets and the "workbook" node itself, can you see any VBA code?

How the macro is run - using the workbook name?... if YES then chark your reference to point to the workbook.XLSM.

Move your macro to a normal module rather than a worksheet code module, and you should be fine.
