XLM macro sheets

An XLM macro sheet (also known as an MS Excel 4 macro sheet) is essentially a worksheet, but it has some different defaults. More specifically, an XLM macro sheet displays formulas rather than the results of formulas. In addition, the default column width is larger than in a normal worksheet.

As the name suggests, an XLM macro sheet is designed to hold XLM macros. As you may know, the XLM macro system is a holdover from previous versions of Excel (version 4.0 and earlier). Excel 2003 continues to support XLM macros for compatibility reasons — although it no longer provides the option of recording an XLM macro. This book does not cover the XLM macro system; instead, it focuses on the more powerful VBA macro system.
