It is easy to place a finger a little bit out with Windows 7/Office 2010 and text just disappears - it has happened twice while attempting to respond. i will try again.
I have copied the Personal,xlsb file from one of my laptops to the new desktop.
1. In brand new Excel 2010 why wasn't this all important file present to start with as it was with both my laptops - identical OS and identical Excel 2010?
2. I believe there is a Hide and Unhide function for Personal.xlsb. How do i locate that if I need it?
3.The Seach function in Windows 7 is no good for file searches whereas Windows XP was excellent. My seach in the laptop for the file came up with 30 plus answers, not one gave me what I needed but I had to wade through all those answers with nothing appropriate in any of them.
I downloaded the usual 2000 plus share prices tonight in csv format into Excel. Two seconds after pressing Ctrl + c all had the A: inserted in front. e.g. BHP became A:BHP etc.
Good result and with your input on the above this enquiry can be put to bed.
Thanks & Compliments of the Season.
