files open automatically


C

Hi,
My problem is that a number of Excel files keep opening automatically, each time I start Excel. I don’t know how to stop this.

I am using Mac, OsX Mountain lion, Excel 2011.

I know that I can select a map to save files that I want to open automatically, but these files are neither in there nor in my default work map for Excel. However I see the filenames greyed out from within Excel, not from Finder. Indeed, using Finder I even can’t find the files nowhere on my computer.
How do I stop these files from opening up or how can I erase them? (I don’t need them at all anymore.)
Thanks

The "save session" feature of MacOS X is probably turned on for Excel.
Google for a way to disable it and this behavior will go away.
