    Re: Excel Addins (Excel 203)

    Mark,

    I've just seen 3 new posts with similar complaints in another Excel group.
    No answers available - but I'm betting Microsoft has "done" something again...

    '----------------------------------------------------
    1. "My project is password protected. If I open it, cause a form to be
    displayed (any form) and then close or quit Excel, the project
    password prompt appears."

    2. "Users running our Excel spreadsheet tool were having no problems until
    recently. We've had several users get the Password Prompt for VBA
    Project Appears After Excel Quits when they close our application. We
    have over 8000 users worldwide and lately we've had about 5 users get
    the vba password prompt when they exit the tool. Any ideas why this
    would be happening?"

    3. "That's very odd, this started happening to us recently too. IT rolled out a
    "hotfix" which incorporated a new Excel EXE (from Microsoft) - my suspicions
    lie in this direction."

    Excel Addins (Excel 2003)

    I have an addin that calls subroutines in other addins. The main addin calls the subroutines from the other addins after opening the addin and then using the application.run command. This all works fine on Excel 2000, but when I run it on Excel 2003, I get message boxes asking for the addin password when I close Excel. If the addins are not password protected there are no problems. Anyone got any ideas what is going on?

    regards

    Re: Excel Addins (Excel 203)

    VERY interesting!! <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22> My company just upgraded us all to Office 2003 and I had an email from a co-worker in England that whenever he exits the .xls file I sent him (which has lots of VBA code) that he gets prompted for the project password. I wasn't able to duplicate it but now know he's not nuts. I have Office 2003 on my work laptop and wondered why I don't see the error. My only guess so far is that I have a digital certificate installed which I use to sign my Excel projects. Maybe that prevents the password dialog from appearing? I do not have the Google desktop search utility installed as another poster mentioned.

    I wonder what MS has messed up this time and when we'll find a fix for it? <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>

    Thnx,
    Deb

    Re: Excel Addins (Excel 2003)

    Yes I do have Google Desktop installed. Is that the problem?
    I have some add-ins written by others that seem to do the same things as I do but do not casue the problem?

    If you get rid of the google desktop does the problem go away? If it does, it might be the problem. If it does not, it was not the problem.

    Well it looks like Google Desktop IS THE PROBLEM.
    What a shame because I like the Google Desktop. But whatever it is that it does, it's too much hassle to keep it.
    Thanks everyone for taking the time to respond.
