Where are Excel 2011 macros stored on Mac OS X (10.6.6)?  Is it a personal.xlsb file as it is in Windows?  I have a bunch of macros on my Windows computer I would like to use on my Mac.  Can I just copy the file to wherever the folder location is on my Mac?

I had followed instructions similar to that by creating a macro and saving it in the personal macros workbook.  Then, I checked the /Applications/Microsoft Office 2011/Office/Startup folder (with hidden files VISIBLE in Finder) but the personal workbook does not show up there.  I know the personal macros workbook exists because when I quit and restart Excel it still shows I have the "dummy" macro saved in it.  Any other ideas?

I found it!  I searched for "Personal Macro Workbook" in Spotlight because that is the way the Excel VBA Editor shows it named.  It is located in /Documents/Microsoft User Data/Excel and named "Personal Macro Workbook.xlsb".
