Excel: Where is the personal.xls stored?

Excel: Where is the personal.xls stored?

I created macros and stored them in the personal workbook. It opens every time I open Excel but I can't locate the personal.xls file anywhere on my machine. Anyone know where this is stored?

RE: Excel: Where is the personal.xls stored?


Look in your default save directory under the subfolders:

Application Data/Microsoft/Excel/XLSTART

Thanks! If I email a workbook to someone else that has macros in it that are stored in the "personal.xls", do I also have to attach that workbook in the email?
