Whenever I open or close Microsoft Word or Excel, I get an error
dialogue box which says Compile error in hidden module: Autoexec.
Any clues about how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Jim

It may help if we can take a peek at the computer's autoexec.bat file.

IT's not the AutoExec.bat file, it's an AutoExec macro that results in the
error.
One needs to look at the code of the macro to determine what's going on.

Thanks. How would I find the macro?

Sorry, I really am a newbie...

You want to go Tools, Add-ins and check what add-ins you have installed.
There - uncheck the culprit. If it's not there, go Tools, Macros, Visial
Basic - in the Visual Basic Editor window - your templates and add-ins will
show on the left side. It may be a module in one of the templates. Sorry, I
just don't remember off the top of my head where the AutoExec thingy
lived....
