The error message should tell you the name of the file that cannot be found. Please post that information, as there are many different causes.

If this is in a macro or add in then the file that is associated with it can no loner be found.

Does this occur with a specific workbook or simply when launching Excel?

It occurs always when Excel opens. I click on end and it is fine.

The error message that occurs when you launch Excel should mention the file name as part of the error message. I realize that you just want the problem to go away, but we need more information to help you. Could you please post the name of the file that can't be found?

What do you see in the VBA Editor?
1) After Excel launches, ALT + F11 to open the VBA Editor
2) In the Tools...References menu item, is anything checked and listed as xxxx (missing)? All the checked items will be listed at the top. If you see one that is labeled as xxxx (missing), please post the (missing) items. You might also try unchecking those items and seeing if the problem goes away.
3) The Project Explorer should be displayed on the left. If lists all the open workbooks and add-ins. If it does not, you can display it with CTRL + R. Except for the workbook that you opened (or Book1), please post all the workbooks and other VB Projects that you see. They will appear in bold font.

You'll need to identify what add-ins you have installed and disable them one at a time to see which one is the culprit. These links might help:

zelfanet,
What was the actual solution to your problem? We threw a lot of darts at the board, but it would be very helpful to future users of the Experts Exchange database to learn which one actually hit the bullseye.
