Preference for Excel "Open the file after saving?"

When you save a file as an Excel Workbook (*.xlsx;*.xls), there is a checkbox at the bottom that says "Open the file after saving".  Is there a way to set this to unchecked in preferences?

I don't think there is one specific to excel and I don't know where it is in the Preferences UI, but I think this running this will do the trick:

 

Set Preferences( Open the file after export( 0 ) );
