    Compile error in hidden module, in Excel 2003

    Hello: When I open Microsoft Office Excel 2003 I get the following message:
    Compile Error in hidden module: ThisWorkbook, I wonder that means and How can I fix this problem that occurs each time I try to open a file needing to access Excel?

    Thank you.

    Note In this error signature, App.exe is the executable file name of the program where this error occurred. For example, App.exe may appear as "Winword.exe."

    You may get one of these errors depending on the following situations:

    The Microsoft Office Startup folder or the Microsoft Excel Startup folder contains either, or both, of the following Adobe Acrobat PDFMaker add-in template files:
    Pdfmaker.dot and/or Pdfmaker.xla

    You may also get this error if you have Norton AntiVirus installed.

    To fix this error try the following solutions:

    1. Download the latest version of the add-in for Adobe Acrobat 5.0 from
    http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/update.html

    2. Move the Pdfmaker.dot file and the Pdfmaker.xla file from the Office or Excel Startup folder to a different folder on your hard disk. (Steps may vary depending on your version of Windows and Office)


    1. Click on Start, Search, and then click For Files or Folders.
    2. In the Search for file or folders named box, type pdfmaker.dot pdfmaker.xla.
    3. In the Look In box, click the C drive and then click Search Now.

    The Pdfmaker.dot file is located in one of the following folders:
    • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Startup (Word 2000)
    • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\Startup (Word 2002)
    • C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\Startup


    The Pdfmaker.xla file in located in one of the following folders:
    • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Xlstart (Excel 2000)
    • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\Xlstart (Excel 2002)
    • C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\Xlstart


    4. In the Search Results window, right-click the file for each file that is found, and then click Cut.
    5. On your desktop, right-click the My Documents folder, and then click Paste. You can also paste them in a different location if you wish.
