Hi,

 

Am facing an issue on excel 2016 for Mac .

That is every time a launch an excel it throws an error message says open last saved file or cancel,

If I say open then it opens up all the file which are in recent list which becomes totally mess.if I say cancel then it launches a new excel.

 

 

Kindly suggest a solution for the same.

 

Regards,

Prashanth

I just wanted to say thanks so much.  I spent hours and hours troubleshooting and running updates to try and fix this problem and nothing else did.


I was nervous to delete the file at first, but glad I did, it was an instant fix!

 

Appreciate you sharing this info.


Best

Work for me. Mac Office 365. After deleting, I quitted Excel. Re-open. The system generated the same file again, but now it is clean. Thanks.
