When opening XCel 2010, I get a blank screen. I am attempting to open a new file.

I attempted to copy part of an existing file to a new file but lost it when asked if I wanted to place the file-in-transfer to a ?notepad? for future completion of the transfer.

I have re-booted, but that doesn't work. Can you help?

Hi, welcome to the forum,
This is a setting, you can either 'tell' excel to open with nothing or open with a blank file.
You can then choose your own file to open or press File New to create a new document.
Check the Excel Options under the File menu

Thank you. I'll need an interpreter (lack of terminology knowledge on my part) but I'll try it.

Thanks for your time and caring,

While on the phone with a knowledgeable friend I accidently pased my cursor over the bottom of my screen. When I saw that the cursor went to a double-pointed form, I figured that I should try dragging the bottom upwards. Sure enough - there was my spreadsheet!

I still can't tell you what I did to collapse the spreadsheet. But, in the end, my sharp eye made up for my dull brain.

Thank you all for your attempts to help.
