When I open Excel in Windows 7, a box appears and has "look in:" on to top left hand side. In Windows XP one could add folders to this box which I have attached, by clicking on the folder and then right clicking on the box on the far left hand side. When right clicking, on the top it will say add + the name of the folder for eg add my documents this would then appear on the left side of the box. The same applies to Windows 7, except that when you close down Excel and re-open the folder is not retained in this box

Your assistance in retaiining the folder in this box will be most appreciated

Hi Howard

If I am understanding you correctly, your problem is not an Excel problem at all it is general Windows 7 problem.

Things have altered for Windows 7,
If you choose File>Open>navigate to the folder you want and open that so you can see contents.

Then in the left hand pane, right click on Favourites and choose Add current location to Favourites

If this is not what you meant, then post back.

Hi Roger

Thanks for the information. I'm still new to Windows 7, but learning something new each day and finding my way around a lot easier now
