    Excel starts WITHOUT Blank work sheet (Excel XP)

    I had to reinstall Office xp and I seem to have lost excel starting with a blank sheet. I have to load a new blank sheet manually each time.
    What Have I done wrong.
    Also how do I search the lounge these days for previous posts on a subject?? I do not see how to search any more

    Check the shortcut which opens excel does it have the "/e switch" on?:

    "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeEXCEL.EXE" /e

    Remove the "/e":
    "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeEXCEL.EXE"

    (Note your path may vary)

    The search has been disabled due to server overloads see <post#=250092>post 250092</post#>

    Actually just used the program menu choice of excel that office xp places in the program menu. No choice for properties.
    As a work around I created a desktop shortcut to a "new excel worksheet" right clicked desktop. Says new worksheet vs book 1.
    Probably a registry setting that is incorrect

    All these shortcuts should be in folder named something like "Start Menu". Usually in something like "c:documents and settings(your username)start menu"
