Excel: Grouping Windows in a Resume or Workspace File

Last reviewed: October 18, 1994
Article ID: Q24813


Each time Quit is chosen from the File menu in Microsoft Excel version 1.04, 1.06, or 1.50, a file called "Resume Excel" is saved in the System Folder of the workstation. (As a result, all Excel users on a network have their own "Resume Excel" files.)

"Resume Excel" files contain information about the previous session in Excel. When launched, the "Resume Excel" file will open the windows that were active when Excel was open last.

To retain a particular "Resume Excel" file, rename the file and/or move the file to another folder.

To create a file that retains information about the last session in Excel version 2.20, a workspace file can be created. To create a workspace file, do the following:

  1. From the File menu, choose Save Workspace.
  2. Enter a name for the workspace file in the Save Workspace As box. ("Resume" is the default name.)
  3. Click the Save button.

When launched, the workspace file will open the windows that were active when the Workspace file was saved.
