    Evening all

    On my work desktop I have a WB that I downloaded from the lounge but it won't let me delete it!!

    When I open it the pop up says it is a read only so I click notify but it bever notifies me. If I right click and select delete on the icon or highlight the icon and press delete I get the warning that it might be in use by somebody else and that I cannot delete it.

    It s nothing other than an annoyance but it is driving me nuts because I lke to keep my desktop to a bare minimum.

    Any ideas please??
    Cheers

    Steve

    Asking the questions everbody wants the answers too but feels too stupid to ask themselves :-)

    Have a look in task manager to see if you have a hidden instance of Excel running.

    Just an extension of the previous note. Sometimes Excel is started up by another program or by a a VBA macro and runs silently. If it is not closed down properly, it continues running as a process and not an application. You should therefore look at the processes list as well as the applications list.

    In addition to what the others wrote, restarting Windows will usually solve such problems.
