What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.

Hi

Sounds like a new instance of Excel is opening up each time and loading Personal.xls (which is already open in your first instance) hence you are getting this message. When you open a second workbook, is it in a standalone Excel? ie If you click on Window, do you see all your workbooks listed or just the new one?
