You can clear the recent document list easily. You can set it to not show any recent documents easily
however to selectively decide which documents to show is not easy. It can only be done in the 2007 version by finding the list in the registry using the regedit command and then selectively deleting them
hold the windows logo key down and hit r
in the run box that pops up type
now navigate to
in that key is the list of recent documents one per line
right click on any that you dont want to see on the list and select delete
This page has complete instructions with pictures. But you need to replace "word" with "excel" in the actual registry

Open Excel. Click on File and then Recent
Now you will able to see Recent Workbooks.
Right click on the file you need to remove and select Remove from List
If that works great. But I don't believe it will in the 2007 version.
