If you're speaking of what happens when you double-click an Excel file, try
having Excel re-register itself.

From Start->Run enter "Excel.exe /regserver" (w/o quotes).  If the installer
pops up just cancel it.

Are you sure this is the case, or could it be you're 
misled by each workbook having its own button on the 
Windows taskbar?
If you're not sure, try this: from the menu, choose Toos > 
Options, tab View, and remove the tick from Windows in 
Taskbar. If the behaviour changes, then it's just this 
setting, not multiple sessions.

Print an Excel document directly without starting Excel
Hello I like to print an Excel-sheet directly. The sheet is an phone-list, and has to be printed directly, so that bad- schooled users can use that button too. I guess that there are some parameters or so that send a document directly to the default printer. Straingely I can't find them anywhere. Greetings, Pieter Palsma Pieter If you find the file in Windows Explorer, for example, you can right-click on it and print it from there.

Custom Format time to arc
I'm trying to find a symbol to Format/Cells/Custom, a symbol that represents the max value of 360�. I know "H" is equal to the max value of 24 hours, "m" is equal to sixty minuets and "s" is equal to sixty seconds, this [h] will roll hours over past 24, and I know to format cells like this h� m' s.00\" but these symbols represent time not the arc of 360�. I want to convert arc to time and time to arc with the symbols in costum format, I don't think this is possible, is it? Am I doing this backwards? Should I be working with a formula or a combina...

Excel Spreadsheets Reformat Question
I have a disk full of Excel files; I suspect they were created by exporting from an accounting program to Excel to share the financial information with others.

While you are doing that, why would you want to *not* use XL's charting features, via the same automation? Is there something missing in XL's features.
