Default Workbook

Using Windows XP; MS Office 2003 (11.5612.5606)

Whenever I open Excel, a blank workbook entitled "Personal" opens. If
I open any other Excel file, the "Personal" workbook opens first. This
may have resulted from a prompt to save my "Personal" macros... and I
may have made an error in how I saved it.

How can I establish the typical "Book 1" as the default workbook when I
open Excel? When I was able to open a "Book 1" after the "Personal"
book had opened, I saved it as "Book 1.XLT" in the Office XLSTART file.
When I then opened Excel from my quick launch, "Personal" still opened
first, followed by "Book 1.XLT".

Many thanks.

Additionally, when opening the properties on the quick launch, the
following path appears: C:\Documents and Settings\wf63135\Application
Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART... but when I open the wf63135 file, I do
not see a "Application Data" file.

Lastly... if I save anyting to the "Personal" workbook, the next time I
open Excel... whatever data I saved within the "Personal" workbook will
appear when I open Excel (... because "Personal" opens every time I
start Excel).

Many thanks.

OK... I fixed it... went into window and selected "Hide"... now when I
open Excel, Book1 opens as it should.
