That message is supposed to show up just once per Octave session. The
function that emits this message, xlsopen.m, scans for spreadsheet support
I/O and stores found interfaces in persistent variables.

Based upon your description, one possibility is that your scripts contain a
"clear -f" command somewhere; that's the most obvious way those persistent
variables will be wiped.
Another possibility is that you open spreadsheet files with different
interfaces each time. Can also happen if in one script a spreadsheet file is
opened with a specifically requested interface, and in another script no
interface is specified so xlsopen.m falls back to the default interface

That's about all I can say here without further info from your side about
what your scripts actually do with spreadsheet files.

BTW I decapitalized the subject line, we don't like shouting :-)
