EXCEL 2007 COMPATIBILITY MODE ISSUE



Hello,

Is there a way to prevent Excel 2007 from opening in compatibility mode for
each workbook you open? I have Office Professional 2007, Windows XP Pro OS.
This is what I have done so far:
I opened Excel and saved the default worksheet Book1 in the xlsx format. The
file was saved in C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application
Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART
This does work if I have one instance of Excel open, but when I open a
second it shows Book1.xlxs is locked for editing and when I close that
warning box it opens with Book1 in compatibility mode.
Before I saved book1 the XLSTART folder was empty with the exception of my
macro personal file.

Advice and help is much appreciated!!

Thank you

.
