I hope someone can assist with what is probably something simple. I have deleted several files in Excel but they remain listed when I use File or when i open Excel. I can't see how to delete the names of the already deleted files from the list. Could someone point the way please?

I use Ccleaner Ccleaner Free and use it to clear history in applications. You can tick which applications you want it to clear history in.

Unless VOG know better then it may be a registry edit Delete documents but it depends on which version of Excel. The link is for 2007.

In Excel 2007 you can click on the top Left Hand button then on Excel Options/Advanced and take off the number of recently used files, then go back in and set the number to the number of files you need to see. That should have cleared them off and you will start afresh.

Cheers
