What's the problem with manually doing this? There is only a single user on the computer and it's not resident on the domain.
Like I said it worked perfectly fine, roughly 2 years without a hitch until now. And it's only with Excel.
Like i referenced in my previous posting, there are many subkeys in the registry that point to the My Document's path. Not all of them are handled in the same way. Changing the "Target path" via the icon on your desktop doesn't change it globally. i.e. as you have experienced, it doesn't work the same in Excel.
Which version of MS Office are you using out of curiosity?
Open up the registry and drill down to the following 2 keys and copy and paste the data in the right pane:
1) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell NoRoam\MUICache
2) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\DocFolderPaths
