Default Recent Files used - Excel 2000

I've got my "Recent" settings set at nine but only FOUR will ever show up.
Does anybody know why?

Also, when I do a Search and open and update an Excell file, it doesn't show
up in the "Recent" list.
Does anybody know the reason for this?

Thanks,
Doug

How are you opening them - via shortcuts in Explorer, or using File / Open.
I 'think' that earlier versions of Excel only added to the MRU when using
file / Open - Not 100% sure though, and am sat on a laptop at the moment so
don't have all the versions installed that I do on my desktop to be able to
check.

Thanks Ken,
I open them both ways: Explorer and File/Open.
It just seems that it won't budge off the FOUR counter

Do you know of a site at Microsoft where I might find the answer??

To be honest, unless you want to pay for a support incident then you are
pretty much where you would normally need to be.

What happens if you change it to 3 or 2 for example, check that it has taken
effect, and then try a number above 4?

Thanks Ken,
I'll try that. I'll be gone today but I'll give it a try later and get back
to you.

Hi Ken,
You had a good idea! That seemed to "knock it loose."

Thanks for your suggestion.
Doug
