Personal.xlsb - References in VBA for Excel 2010

Hello,
I want to use my functions in all my Excel workbooks, but I don't want to have to type PERONAL.XLSB! in front of the function name every time.
I thought that i hcould permanently add my personal.xlsb vba project as a reference (In Tools -> References) and that my functions would become available just using their vba name (se attached).
Am I wrong about this ? ie: Do I need to create an add-in ?
Any help would be appreciated  - in the attached screen shots I have an example of my personal .xlsb (I have changed the project name to be CS_Project - this is the library of functions I would like to add to the references dialog box, also attached).
I hope this makes sense - I'm looking forward to any replies as this is driving me a bit mad now !!

Best regards,

Craig

For functions to work without the workbook name, you'll have to put them in an add-in that's not your personal.xlsb.

Little setup time, but once setup not much maintenance issue.

This tutorial has got it all described: http://fontstuff.com/vba/vbatut03.htm

Sorry for the delay - I was able to find what I needed from these references.

My main issue - I was trying to reference a project to itself.  DOH!

Using the addins will be a good future solution for me though.

Thanks again for the time spent looking at this for me.
