Excell 2000 opens all files automaticall

By bighouse ·
When Excell 2000 is opened all excell files open automatically from a-z, I have run Norton A/V and reinstalled office and it still acts the same way. 20 other computers on the same network do not have any simmilar problems.

I remember seeing this problem once before, and if my memory serves, it was a corrupt registry. You can get Excel to rewrite its entries in the registry by running excel.exe /regserver from a DOS window. Check these links for more Excel command-line switches, and restoring corrupt registry settings (watch for wrapping URL):

You may also want to check the TOOLS/OPTIONS/GENERAL/ALTERNATE STARTUP FILE LOCATION: setting. Many times by accident an individual may set this instead of the DEFAULT FILE LOCATION to a folder where they keep their work files.

As a result, Excel attempts to open all the files in the said folder.

If opening is posing a difficult problem, use the REGISTRY, REGEDIT.

Look for the key.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\OFFICE\9.0\EXCEL\OPTIONS

If a ALTSTARTUP entry exists, deleteit. Note that you should be on the workstation as the user(s) with the issue.

Good luck!

Thank you!
