    I'm not sure how I did it, but somehow I lost having Book1 open on startup. I made sure that a copy of Book.xltx was in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\XLSTART folder and the C:\Documents and Settings\myname\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART folder. I had a copy in each folder, then I tried having it in just one of the folders at a time. I've also tried putting the path name in the "At startup, open all files in:" box. I have tried shortcuts and opening Excel.exe directly. No matter what, Book1 does not appear on each restart. I do know that my Personal.xlsm file is opening from the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\XLSTART folder. But that's the only thing that's working. I appreciate any help.

    Jim,

    Have you edited your shortcut that starts Excel?

    If you place the /e switch after the path filename for Excel it will open w/o Book1.

    There is no switch in the shortcut as far as I can tell. It was part of an enterprise installation, if I have the terminology right. Thanks.
