Open Excel question

  Paranoid Android 18:49 26 Mar 04

A colleague at work has an odd problem with Excel (2000). Whenever she goes to save a new document is has Template format pre-selected and she has to remember to change this to Excel workbook.

There are no files in the XLStart folder - I checked.

Any ideas ???

(VOG are you out there ???)

How odd!

Even if there was something in the XLStart folder, templates are not loaded automatically from there, just available from the file menu.

All that springs to mind is if the has an add-in loading that night be causing this - look in Tools/Addins.

Could try a Detect and Repair from the Help menu.

Sorry I can't offer anything more concrete.

My tuppence worth would be to save a new blank file as Book1.xlt. Perhaps the overwrite might correct things but as stated earlier - how odd!

Try Tools-Options and then the Transition Tab, select the Microsoft Excel Workbook from the drop down box
