Undo Levels in Excel – Not a Question

  VoG II 18:58 16 Jul 2005

The default undo level in Excel is four. This can be increased to any number up to 100.

Start, Run, type


and click OK. Navigate to


right click and create a new DWORD 'UndoHistory' with a value equal to the number of levels required.

On Win 98SE, Office '97 there is no "Options" 'folder' in that path VoG.

There is however, a further folder called "Microsoft Excel" under "Excel" that seems to contain a lot of configuration options, some even called Option, Option3, Option5, etc., do you think this is where I should place this new DWord.

Can the same thing be done for the other Office programs, eg. Word, Access, Powerpoint, etc. do you think ?

Answer it myself, YES, thats where to put the DWord for Office '97 on Windows 98.

Works a treat, thanx VoG.
