Can't save macros in Excel 2010

I have been using macros in Excel 2003 for years, and every time I open a workbook they are there where I need them.  Since I upgraded to Office 2010, however, I lost all the macros I created in 2003 and when I create new ones, though I ask that they be saved in the Personal workbook, they are gone when I log out of Excel.  What happens to them?

Not sure why they're not saved in the PMW, but are you saving with xlsm format (rather than xlsx or xlsb)?

If so, then when you re-open, Excel may throw a message bar above the format bar asking if you'd like to enable macros.  Maybe you missed that.  However, even if the macros are not active, the code should still be there for xlsm files.

You can also check in the Options, in the Addins section, to see if your personal macro workbook is listed in the disabled items section.

I just played with Excel last night and was able to save a test macro, and one I use regularly.  I think the issue was that I didn't save the first one I created.  I think I'm all set.

Thanks.

I  checked addins to confirm the personal workbook wasn't disabled as you suggested and it wasn't .  So I opened a workbook, and saw the macros I had just created.

I still don't know how to get the ones I created in excel 2003, however.
