New Application opening for each file


M

Michelle

Hello, I've posted this query before, but with no luck. The same thing is
happening to a couple of my friends too:

Every time I double-click an Exel file, a new 'occurence'of the application
(v2003) opens (complete with 'read-only/notify' dialog about Peronal.xls),
rather than just opening in the already open application. Can I change it so
that all files open in the already open application?

In Tools-Options-General, Ignore Other Applications is unchecked - although
it doesn't make any differenc either way.

I have both 2003 & 2007 installed, but have 2003 as the default app for .xls
files

Any idea how I can stop it.

Thanks

M

Try reregistering excel.

Close Excel and
Windows Start Button|Run
"C:\yourpathtoexcel2003\excel" /unregserver
then
Windows Start Button|Run
"C:\yourpathtoexcel2003\excel" /regserver

The /unregserver & /regserver stuff resets some of the windows registry to
excel's factory defaults.

This or unchecking the ignore other applications has worked for lots of people.
