    Excel Lost its Memory (97 SP2)

    Lately when I open Excel, nothing shows up on the recently used files list. This doesn't happen every time, but frequently. For years now I've had the list set to show the maximum of 9 files. Any clues as to why it would suddenly not show any files?

    What happens if you clear the check box for saving recently used files, click OK and quit Excel, then restart Excel, tick the check box again (and set the number to 9)? Does the MRU list start filling again?
