    Recently Used File List

    <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>I am trying to figure out a way to globally turn off the recently used file list in Excel. Does Excel have something like the Normal.dot????

    Re: Recently Used File List

    If you go to Tools Options and select the General Tab, you can set the number of files. If you un tick the check box the you disable the feature.


    EDIT : If you want to make it global, you set in the default workbook , Book.xlt in your xlstart directory.
    Hope that is what you want

    Re: Recently Used File List

    Andrew,
    Thank you for your prompt response. I knew that you could turn it off here, however, I have about 500 users right now using Excel 2000 with the iManage dms. I would like to disable the recently used file list for all users, and am looking for a quicker way to disable it than going machine to machine and turning the feature off.
    I would love a quicker way. In Word, I re-wrote the autoexec to make sure that the option is disabled.
    Thanks again!
