Hi, I have a problem that is more of an anoyance than a major disaster. Hope somebody can help out regardless.

Excel displays the following message when starting up:

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\LIBRARY\Dellinks.xla could not be found. Check the spelling of the file name, and verify that the file location is correct.

I have checked the XLSTART folder within Windows Explorer, which is empty. Any ideas anyone?

By the way, I'm using Excel 2000 SR-1

Hi valleyboy,

The Dellinks.xla is an Excel Add-in file. You can read more about this add-in here.

It looks like Excel is try to load the file when starting but the file has been removed. Go to the Tools menu and select Add-Ins... and uncheck any add-ins that are not required from that list. These file are automatically loaded when Excel starts so that would be the reason that it isn't in your Startup folder.
