The XLS file has Parts List info in it... especially when saving assembly drawing.

So has someone at your company created a macro that automatically exports the parts list on save? sure sounds like it. This isn't default out of the box behavior.

No. I'm the sole user in our company.

Now I recall, that I had a virus infection. It was 'Vista Security 2012' virus... You know virus,

that pretends to be an anti-virus program, but isn't...Could this make it happen?

Anyway if that's the reason, how to stop that?

Has it always been doing this?

Where there other employees using Inventor before you were hired?

Can you access the vba editor button while in the idw file and take a screenshot.

Were you on subscription at one time? Do you have the ilogic addin?

No...

- This is new behaviour.

- I'm the only user, like I said.

- You mean Alt+F11? Yes (screenshot added)

- I have iLogic, but it's been here over a year, and this behaviour is new...
