Macro is locked


New to Office 2010 - I created a macro and a custom button that I added to the ribbon - it all worked fine - now when I go into my VBA editor I can't acces any of my macros - I get a dialog box that says "Project Locked", "Project is unviewable" - these are stored in my startup folder - whats going on here? security setting?

You cannot edit macros whose template is only visible in the VBA editor because the template is in the startup folder.

You will have to open the template as a document if you want to view and edit the VBA code in it.

I just want to run the macro - I created a .dotm template that contains a simple macro - assigned this to a quick access button - when I now click this button I get this error - "the macro cannot be found or is disabled because of your security settings.
When I click on view-macros none are available.
Shouldn't I be able to create - save in startup - and run the macro anytine (as its loaded from the startup folder)

The macro (saved as a .dotm) is loaded as an Add-in - I can see that ticked but when I try and run I get the above error message - 2 options are security settings (I have set to enable all macros) and add-ins (as mentioned it loads)
