    excel file on open - opens twice (excel 97)

    Hiya

    On only this particular excel file - when I open the excel file - the result is it opens like the same file twice.
    What I mean is if I open up this file> when I goto the menu Window - the filesnames displayed are:
    filename .XLS:1
    samefilename.XLS:2

    Is this like a setting New window on this file - but its sticking to this file?
    How do I remove?

    many thanks & regards Diana

    Yes, that is a second window on the same file. If you close that window by clicking on the X in menu bar (not the one in the title bar) for the ":2" file, and then save the file the problem should go away.
