I just got upgraded to Windows 7 from Windows XP Professional.  In the past, I had a .xlsb file located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 14\XLSTART.  Each time I started Excel, this file would load as hidden and I had macros I was able to link to icons in my customized quick access toolbar.

Now that I have upgraded, I wish to be able to do the same.  I used the ? Application.StartUpPath in VBA Immediate Window to determine the new path which told me:  C:\users\*username*\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART\.

However, when I start Excel, it is not working.

Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Thanks!

You might need to adjust the macro settings in the Excel trust-centre

Seems to work as expected.  I don't know why it doesn't show up in VBA when Excel starts, but it's there when I run a macro..
