Open Excel Document

Hi - Strange one this.
When in Explorer/My Computer and I double click on a spreadsheet.xls MS
Excel 2007 opens but the document is not displayed. Just the application is
open with no loaded document. If I open a second document while the first is
still open then both of them instantly gets displayed.
I have tried a reinstall and I have upgraded to SP2 with no hope.

Thank you in advance.

I have the same problem and cannot find an answer. I did notice though, that
after I initially dbl-click on the document and Excel launches without the
document opening, if I hit the minimize button in the upper right it will
immediatley open the document. Still not right since no one else in my
office has the same problem. It seems the only way I can open a doc is to
launch Excel first.

This is what I ended doing and it did the trick.

Go to your Control Panel, (click on Start then Click on Control Panel)
Click on Folder Options, then File Types, scroll down to and select (DOC for
Word files) or XLS (for Excel files),
click Advanced and select Open entry,
click the edit Button.
deselect "Use DDE"
append "%1" (include the quote marks) to the end of the application command
line,
Remove /dde if it is at the end of the command line
Then click on OK three times.
