Excel Sheets display in arabic side ...

Hi all, maybe my question will be stupid but i couldn't solve it in anyway, after installing Office 2007 OR 2010 and the arabic language pack for it i discovered an issue. when creating new Excel file on desktop it opens with Arabic viewing sheets but am sure my language settings are set to English US .... any ideas about this issue !!! knowing that when i open it from start it open normally .... please help with this if you have any idea !!! Thanks.

I found a solution while raising this issue to Microsoft Support. I tried it and it worked perfectly.

After installing the MS Office and the Language Pack what happens is that the language pack installation replaces the default templates. The solution is to repair the Full Installation of the office itself in order to re-replace the default templates and install the correct ones.

After doing this all my issues regarding this has been solved.

I really advise that anyone who is facing such issues to try this solution and it will be solved.

Thanks everybody for your help in this manner.
