Recent Folder contains duplicate shortcuts

Microsoft Excel 2000

Specs: Windows 2000
I have noticed that under my RECENT folder there are duplicate named shortcut. Sometimes the duplicate has the same time-stamp and then other times a different time-stamp. Both named shortcuts go to the same file location.

I was wondering why I would be getting duplicates. I would think that the latest time-stamped shortcut would overwrite the existing shortcut in the Recent folder.
I don't see two of a shortcut in the Start/Documents list.

Any thoughts on why this occurs?

Interesting info! Thanks for the link. It explains why I would get a duplicate shortcut.

However, it does not explain why I get dups of one and not all!!
Other shortcuts are just replaced!

Have you got a clue on that?
