Hi all!

I get this message when I start Excel:

.doc: file format is not valid

I have no auto_open() macro.
Excel is not prevented from running, I just have to click "ok" to continue using.
I am running XL2000 on Windows2000.

Any ideas, this is kind of annoying,
Abundant Thanks,
Corticus

Using a mouse in Excel is the work equivalent of wearing a lanyard when you first get to college
Check your xlStart folder and see if somehow a Word file got saved there.

Nothing in XLStart,

I think your right about an .doc file being saved somewhere XL doesn't like...

I'm still looking, though...

Thanks for such a fast reply!

Yeah baby!

That was it,
I had our network drive (G:) as an alternate startup

funny, this never caused a problem before, its always been there...

Anyways,
You Da Bomb!!
Thanks a bunch,
