    OK...I needed to add a keyboard shortcut to an Excel workbook. I had done this before but forgotten how I did it. So, I went on line and picked a likely solution. I followed the steps, and have been screaming bad words ever since. The suggestion was to create the shortcut in a 'personal' project. Now if I have any workbook open and then try to open another, I get a warning that Personal.xls is locked for editing, notify, read only, cancel.
    I also have workbooks that open every hour through Scheduled Tasks which get updated info from the web. These also cannot open because the Personal.xls is locked.
    I can't find a workbook called Personal.xls on my cumputer, only as a project in the macros.
    How do I get rid of Personal.xls?
    Any suggestions are apperciated.
