Hello,

Excel crapped out on me today.
Oddly, it deleted personal.xls.
I did a whole system search on personal.xls and I could not find it.

Also not in the directory
E:\Microsoft Office\Office10\XLStart

anyone have any idea what to do?
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Oh yeah. When I try to create a new Personal workbook it returns the following error message.

Personal Macro Workbook in the startup folder must stay open for recording.

The only I could record/create a macro for my personal workbook was to create personal.xls in the XLstart folder. Unfortunately that workbook now opens up every time I work on other workbooks.

Any way to keep personal.xls hidden?

Hi,
Give it a try.
Go to Window in the menu and unhide.
Save the file... and reopen to see if it works.

Great !

I have downloaded a trial version of "TuneUp Utilities 2003" form www.download.com and it has option from where you can undelete your deleted files.

EXCELLENT utilities..must have.

This what the Tuneup utilities says:

File recovery & Destruction: Safety is feasible. TuneUp Shredder for example is able to delete sensitive files in a way that renders them impossible to restore. On the other hand, TuneUp Undelete can be used to restore programs that had already been deleted from the Windows Recycle Bin.

www.tune-up.com

Is probable its web address
