Excel Facts

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

Hi curt,

Welcome to the board. :)

Yes, you can change this setting. Go to Tools/Options and select the General tab. There is a "Setings" section there that enables you to adjust the recent filelist number.

(This is based on Excel97 - hope 2000 is similar!)
