When i open a new excel sheet it opens with numbers across the top and down the side, but when i open an existing excel it opens with letters across top and numbers down the side.  Its gotta be a setting we changed by accident but i cant find it.  I tried doing a repair on excel to and restore all the settings, but that didn't work.
