Things to try:
- see if any file happens to be in folder XLstart (such a file openes automatically)
- delete (or rename) personal.xls (your personal macro file)
- delete (or rename) the spreadsheet that pops up every time (what happens?) - use file>save as to find out name and location.
What happens if you press ctrl-n (open new empty spreadsheet)?
My OS: Windows XP Pro SP2. Running MS Office XP Pro.
My MS Excel opens with a previously saved/or worked on worksheet-
i.e. opening via the program icon at Program Files, and also via the short cut icon at the Start>All Programs menu. I am now unable to open up a blank worksheet(template ? ). Sure, I can delete the data at the opened worksheet to work on the resulting blank, but it is very troublesome because of the cells formating present therein. Is there anything I can do like in MS Word where I can delete the Normal.dot and then let Office create a new template ?
I also noticed that when I open other worksheets, I get a brief view(about half a second) of that worksheet mentioned above before the intended worksheet opens.
If I switch to a different account, then there is no problem. However, I do not ''own'' that account. Is there anyway to ''transfer'' the settings ? The only solution I have is to create a template on the other account or on another computer and transfer it to my account on the computer.
Thanks for any suggestions.
