Macro locations

I Recently gave a user a new Roaming profile. Unfortunatley the macros didnt copy over. Any Ideas where I can salvage the macros?
Are the macros attached with the profile?

Re: Macro locations

Excel macros stored in in the applicable workbook or in personal.xls

Re: Macro locations

If the user was creating many macros they would probabaly have saved them into their personal.xls spreadsheet, and kept it open but hidden. It would probably be located in:

C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART

This would allow the personal.xls to open when they opened excel, allowing access to run the macros.
