There are centain files that I want to load into MS Excel 2010 every time I click the MS Excel icon --- I use these files every day. 3 are regular .XLSX files, two are .XLSM files. None of the file names are even remotely similar in filename. But I can only get one of the .XLSM files to open. I created a STARTUPs folder and dumped shortcuts to all 5 files in that folder --- works great except for the 2nd .XLSM file. tried renaming it. nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?

Would you be okay with creating a batch file that launches the selected excel files?

for example

@echo off
cd C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Desktop
start bunnies are awesome.XLSM
start foxes are cute.XLSM

forgot to add, you can also add a batch file as a startup item if you want.
