If you upgrade to Microsoft Excel 97 from an earlier version of Excel, the user settings are reset to the new defaults for Excel 97. For example, if you changed the default number of worksheets in a new workbook from 16 to 2 in an earlier version of Excel, upgrading to Excel 97 resets the default number of worksheets in a new workbook to 3.
Excel 97 does not inherit the user settings from earlier versions of Excel.
This behavior is by design of Microsoft Excel 97.
For more information about changing the default number of worksheets in Excel 97, click the Index tab in Microsoft Excel 97 Help, type the following text
and then double-click the selected text to go to the "Change the default number of worksheets in a new workbook" topic.
