November 8th all day,
Technology Forum – an exploration of e-learning technologies from capabilities to concerns from various perspectives.

Excel – Create a Workspace

Posted in Did you Know? on October 7, 2007 by

Have you ever been working with a number of workbooks open, and were called away to another task? Were you forced to close Excel, and then to open all files again later?
A File arrangement can be saved as a Workspace in Excel. In other words, you can arrange a number of workbooks open in a certain way. Then simply choose File menu > Save Workspace. This creates a small file with the extension .xlw. This file, when invoked, will open Excel and all the workbooks and arrange them accordingly. The Workspace can be placed on your desktop. It does not contain the files, but rather loads the files in a prescribed arrangement.
The default filename is Resume.xlw. In other words, any time interruptions require closing a grouping of workbooks amid changes, simply choose File > Save Workspace > choose Save In: Desktop > Save. There will be an icon named “Resume” right on your desktop, which will allow you to quickly resume your activities.
