two problems, the first spawned the other, and both have taken hours=20
of time already (mostly in fruitless research) to try and remedy:
First problem: the recently used file list in the file menu is =
the files by their whole "pathname" and not merely by their filenames. =20
As new system architecture pretty much requires me to save things in=20
certain nested places, this is INSANE. the names are too long, and I=20
often have difficulty identifying my files. Previous versions of excel=20
seem to have been able to only display the filename.. I've been=20
searching for how to do it in Excel X for months.
Second problem: while trying to fix this, I recently discovered I can =
the properties of these items in the file menu using the customise...=20
command. I did so. *NOW* I've gotten myself into a problem where=20
the top two items display the incorrect filenames and never change. =20
trying to reset the list by turning it off in preferences and then back =
does not reset these first two items.
I need ideas. Can anyone help?? Thanks in advance. -erk.
