Whenever I click on "Find" the "Match entire cell contents" box is ALWAYS checked.
I have to constantly uncheck it to effectively search for things.
Is there anyway to turn this off or change its default setting???

Do you have any addins or startup workbooks with code in them? The default should be unchecked.

Well what do you know!
I had an S-Plus add-in that was in there when I reviewed what add-ins I had running.
I turned it off and the check mark disappeared!
Thanks!
