 EXCEL 2000 STARTS BY OPENING ALL XLS FILES

i was unable to get to the menu as the program froze
trying to load all the spreadsheets , HOWEVER
i opened excel 2000 on another machine BUT there
was no such option in the TOOLS,OPTIONS, GENERAL
the only option that MAY be of relevance is the
check box "IGNORE OTHER APPLICATIONS"

the only thing i can think of doing is check off this
option on the other machine and copy the program file
to my machine .....

but who knows what the consequences will be if i do this

Is not working
There is no path in there when you open in save modus so you can't delete
them

Move the files that are opening to a other location and start Excel then you
have no problem with memory and change the setting

Also check out the Xlstart folder on your machine, every file in there wil
also open
when you start Excel.

Look good, in 97 it is there so 2000 also
<At Startup, open all Files in>
maybe the text in 2000 is a little different

Check the Xlstart folder also on your system

i have BOTH EXCEL 97 & 2000 under win2000pro
on several other machines but my machine is the
only one doing this...

most disturbing but not the end of the world
i can live with 97

thanks ron for all your help but i think i will

The option Ron is referring to is
Tools=> Options => General Tab.

Toward the bottom:

Alternate Startup File Location:

That should be blank.

If you have a location specified there, when excel opens, it will open all
files in that location.

Tom Ogilvy

Hi Mike

Find the folder where the files -or some of them- are stored. Rename the
folder.

Best wishes Harald
