Calling a UDF addin in the personal work book

I have a user defined function. I created an addin for it so that it would show up in every work book and that works fine and the function works well.

I also created a macro in my personal workbook that calls the udf.

When my udf is defined in an individual workbook, the macro and udf work great, but when I have the udf as an add-in (so that I don't have to add it to every workbook), I get a
Compile Error:
Sub or Function not defined and it highlights my udf.

I basically want to be able to run my macro from any workbook (hence why I put it in my personal workbook), without needing to add the function to every workbook (which is why I put it in as an add-in).

Any ideas as to why the personal workbook macro won't recognize my udf when it's in an add-in?

Make it Public rather than Private.

The function was already public. For some reason, when I added it to the personal macro workbook as well as having it as an addin, it works fine.

I would have thought there would be some kind of conflict with the same function in an addin and in the personal workbook, but I guess not.
