I have always found it a little annoying that Excel thinks it needs to give us three worksheets in a new workbook by default, especially since it is so easy to add a new one. Also, there have been discussions several times over the past several years about not leaving unused worksheets in audit workpapers. The remedy to this tragic annoyance is quite simple.
- Click the Office button and go to Excel Options.
- Under “When creating new workbooks” change the number next to “Include this many sheets” to 1.
- Click OK.
