    Retaining Tooltips (2003)

    Hi:

    I've tried searching for an answer, but without success.

    I turn on toolbar tips - Tools / Customise / Options / Show Screentips on toolbars - but the setting is not retained between sessions of Excel, as I thought it should be (and used to be!)

    The next time I start Excel, the tooltips have to be turned on again. What am I missing?

    Tony.
    Regards,

    Tony

    It could be caused by an add-in. The Adobe Acrobat add-in, for example, is notorious for messing up user preferences.

    Thanks Hans - That may well be the problem. I must admit I have an (excessive?) predeliction to trying out add-ins!
