    Just re-installed Office 2003, and everytime I open up Excel, the Personal.xls file opens up as opposed to Book1. How can I fix this?
    Thanks in advance.

    With Personal.xls as the active workbook, select Window | Hide.
    When you quit Excel, you should be prompted whether you want to save changes to Personal.xls. Answer Yes.
    Next time you start Excel, Personal.xls should be hidden.

    Hans,
    In 07 having the same problem. However, when I re-open Excel, it opens to a greyed-out screen, that when I then try to hide it, it returns the personal.xls workbook. Any ideas?
