Windows 7: Excel 2003 Macros do not run correctly on a Windows 7 system.

28 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro 32bit,
Excel 2003 Macros do not run correctly on a Windows 7 system.

Hi all,

I've got a series of Excel 2003 spreadsheets with macros. They run just fine on a Windows XP machine. However, we recently moved them to a Windows 7 Pro machine. We still run them in Excel 2003, only now on a Windows 7 system. Problem is, they don't run right. No errors, but the one that is giving me grief needs to read from a csv text file. I don't thinki it is opening and/or reading the input fule. I don't understand why.
Like I said, everything runs OK on WinXPSP3. I think I have all of the permissions set correctly. UAC is turned off and Elevated priveleges is turned off as well.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Honu425

According to Windows 7 Compatibility Centre, it is compatible with Excel 2003 with Service Pack 3. Do you have Office Excel SP3 installed? 11&l=en&pf=1π=6&s=office%20frontpage%202003&os=32-bit
