Everytime I open more then one new excel workbook, i get the message saying

PERSONAL.XLS is locked for editing ??


Any ideas ?
 

Excel Facts

Why does 9 mean SUM in SUBTOTAL?
It is because Sum is the 9th alphabetically in Average, Count, CountA, Max, Min, Product, StDev.S, StDev.P, Sum, VAR.S, VAR.P.
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?
