Opening Excel files…


R

Reza

Hi all;

In one system when I double-click on a Excel document, the Excel program
starts but does not show the document. The only way that I can view the
document is through the Open dialog box. On the other hand, I must first
select Open from the File menu and then navigate to the document and then
open it.

I use Excel in Windows XP Professional with SP3 and my Office suite is
Office 2003 with SP3.

Any idea?

Thanks

-Reza

Sometimes one of these works when you're having trouble with double clicking on
the file in windows explorer:

Tools|Options|General|Uncheck "Ignore other applications"
(xl2003 menus)

or
Office Button|Excel Options|Advanced|General|Uncheck "Ignore other applications"

--- or ---

Close Excel and
Windows Start Button|Run
excel /unregserver
then
Windows Start Button|Run
excel /regserver

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