Can't view Excel Macro Code using Alt-F11

This is a strange one.  I am using Excel 2003, the OS is XP, and I've recorded a Macro without any problem.  I can also run it without any problem.

My issue is that I can't view the code.  The Macro ought to be viewable under Module1 but the Immediate pane on the right is blank.

Any help would be appreciated.

hmmm...Are you saving the macro to your personal macro workbook?  Open the project explorer (Ctrl+r) and see if there are any other projects loaded where the macro might be stored.

Hi there.

Can you take a screenshot of what you see in the IDE and post it on here?  Might help diagnose the problem

BTW, the immediate pane doesn't really have anything to do with your recorded macro.  The immediate window is used for running individual lines of code outside a subroutine.  It is also used for debugging but not for recorded macros.

Do you have the immediate window so large that it's covering up your code in the general code pane?

Can you see the code when you do Tools|Macro|Macros|Edit|<select your macro>|Edit ?

Yes, somehow the immediate pane was selected and I never realized that it was covering up the General pane.  When I closed it the General pane was visible.  

This affected any navigation that was intended to list out code e.g.   Tools --> Macros --> Step Into.

Thanks.
