Normally, when I open Excel, the startup automatically opens every workbook that is in C:\Users\Bob\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART\
But, I have an "SecondMonitor" macro that launches a second instance of excel by using Set NewApp = CreateObject("Excel.application") .
The second instance does not open xlstart files. In fact, I suspect there are other startup steps are skipped, but that is conjecture.
One way to fix this problem for SecondMonitor to loop through the files using Dir or similar code, and I do not need any help with that code.
But I was wondering if there is a way to tell the second instance to do everything that Excel do if there was a normal startup?
