I have a friend who is suddenly experiencing an issue where they are no longer able to Open an Excel file through their Windows Explorer (e.g. when trying to open a Excel file from within their My Documents folder). After double clicking on the file, Excel opens and acts as if it is opening the file but then proceeds to show just a blank worksheet. The file does not appear to be corrupt since they can then go to File/Open from within Excel, locate the folder and then Open it without a problem.

Any suggestions? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as to the cause and resolution for this.

Thank you greatly,

Mike

Hello, We have gone to the website
http://www.salonrenovationmaisonneuve.com/en/exposants
and download the file to open Inside of IE. Once the file is open, none of the links either e-mail or web site works. However, if we open the same file Inside of Google Chrome, the links work. So, we want to know if we are missing something in IE or a plugin.
The PDF file opens with no problem but the links are not enabled. The file works in an Apple Machine and Google Chrome. However, if we download the file physically inside of the computer and then open the file with Adobe Reader, the links all work! Any ideas
how to solve this issue? Thanks Miguel Moreno

It would be really great and really appreciated if you could help me with a problem. I am unable to open an excel 2007 file in which I have stored examination results for a class of over 140 students.

When I click on the file I first get this message:

"Excel found unreadable content in "2.1 Marks.xlsx". Do you want to recover the contents of this workbook? If you trust the source of this workbook, click Yes.

I can click on yes or no. When I click on yes, i get the following message:

"Excel can not open the file "2.1 Marks.xlsx" because the file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file"

Then I have to click on "OK".

How can I open this file to see my data???? If even I could open it once and print it off that would be enough.

Thank you for any help that you can offer.

I've been running Windows 10 since last August, after upgrading from Win 8.1 on my Asus laptop.
I use the taskbar (launchbar?) to start my favourite programs, such as Excel, and some 8-10 files
are stacked on the icon so I can right-click the icon and select/open my desired file.

That was until approximately 10 days ago, when clicking on a file name only opened Excel, and I have to
do a file/open within Excel to get the file I want open. Other programs that are also on the bar e.g. my PDF program, still opens the file name I click on.

Any suggestions?

Hi Wayne,
You haven't moved or renamed these Excel files, have you?
Does the same problem also happen with Word?
You could try repairing your office installation.
Right-click on the Start Button and select Control Panel>Programs and Features; wait for the list of installed programs to populate, then highlight Microsoft Office; click CHANGE up above the window, then REPAIR. You may have 2 repair options; if so, try the local one first and see if that does the trick.

Hope that helps.

Hello,

I have come to this website because I am at my wit's end with what to do about this piece of malware I have.
I downloaded rkill and Combofix. I have Malware Bytes installed, but I am unable to run or open any of them. My task manager is clouded with consent.exe. Every time I try to open a file, another consent.exe appears in the task manager. I was able to run my anti-virus (Vipre) through hidden icons, but it only found:

fraudtool.win32.fakerean.d

with 2 traces. About a week and a half ago I got rid of (but not completely) a variant of the fake Win 7 Anti-Virus virus', and I'm sure it just crept back up on me. Also I can't run DDS, GMER or Hijack This for a log.

I can access the task manager and Firefox, but that's about it. I'm sure that's just so that it can steal any valuable information I ever put in (bank accounts, etc). When I open my start menu I can't select anything, I used to be able to expand the lower task bar to access mycomputer, but that just got locked up.

I'm running Windows 7 Starter Edition (never again will I ever get a Windows computer after this one...) on a Toshiba netbook.

What can I do from here?

Good morning,
 
I'm having a problem, the newest windows update has caused one of my programs to not work. It is a CAD/CAM software called UCANCAM. The program will open and seems to work great until you attempt to save, open, import, ect. I called the manufacture of our machine that supplied the program, he said to uninstall the program and reinstall. Problem is when trying to uninstall a error message pops up saying "Can't open log file" not sure what to do? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks,

A:Unable to remove program (can't open log file)

Sounds like you will have to contact the manufacture of the computer once again and tell them that your having issues uninstalling the program, perhaps they have instructions for a manual removal, then you may need there help to re-install the program. I assume you have the software where you can re-install it correct? If you do not have the software, you need to get that first before you go and uninstall anything.

Hi guys,

First time on here! From Dublin, Ireland!

I am trying to work on a spreadsheet whereby I want a specific hyperlink in an excel cell to open a pdf to a specific page.

Now I have managed to work with some code where I am able to do as such, however I am getting stuck at a very simple part.

The code works and opens the required page in the pdf in internet explorer, however I need different pdfs to open through the hyperlinks in different cells. Unfortunately, when I click a hyperlink, it is opening all the pdfs I've specified. Is there a way to assign the code to one singular cell so that only the required pdf opens through that cell, and similarly different pdfs in different cells?

I have to add hyperlinks to about 100 cells and while a few of them will open the same document, the pages will be different.

Basically, when I click a link, I just want the req'd page in the pdf to open, but it is opening all the pages specified, even ones for different cells.

The following is my code:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim IE As Object
Dim s As String, sFile As String
Dim iPageNum As Long
If Range("J17").Value <> "" Then
sFile = "C:\Passdowns\Linked Procedures\Startup Guide.pdf" '<- Modify to suit
iPageNum = 12
Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
IE.Navigate sFile & "#Page=" & iPageNum
IE.Visible = True
End If

You need to loop through the range with a variable and use the value of that to access the cell.
At the moment you are treating the whole array of cells as one.

This is a weird problem I've not seen before and I could use some help or someone to point me in the right direction. I searched the forum with no luck.
I'm assuming this is an issue related only to my machine and not an IE7 problem.
:-(

When I click on this link (or one in similar format on the same page), the new window will initially begin to open. Then the new browser instance is redirected to another site....which seems fine & the page switches to the new address, then suddenly the window disappears and the "File Download-Security Warning" box appears and asks if I want to save the file or find a program online to open it with:
Program Name: browserRedirect
Type: Unknown File Type
From: ax.phobos.apple.com.edgesuite.net

Clicking on "Find" takes me to the Windows File Association web page where it says that windows does not recognize this MIME type.

Here's the actual link:

I experiencing BSOD every time a “browse/open file” window is launched. For example: when I want to upload a file, or when I am opening any MS office file (word/excel/etc) using “File > Open”, or when I want to attach a file to an email/ forum post, etc.
sfc /scannow did not find anything.
Temporary solution - Disabling Workstation service in msconfig.msc, but I can't use a local area network without this service. Please help me find a permanent solution.
Now Workstation service disabled and I can upload files.

I have a similar problem as the previous posting but my problem is with Excel not Word. When trying to open any Excel file I receive the message: "There was a problem sending the command to the program." The only way I can access an Excel file is to open "All Programs," choose "Microsoft Office" folder, choose "Microsoft Office Excel 2007" icon, choose "Open" folder, and double click on desired file.

My computer is a three month old custom unit built with Windows 7 Professional. I am using Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007. There have been no problems until this week.

Thanks for any help,

The problem:

I right-click any shortcut icon on the desktop, choose "open file location" from the context menu, and receive an error dialog from windows explorer:

"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."

The error also happens if I choose "properties" from the shortcut's context menu, then click the "open file location" button on the properties window.

After dismissing the error dialog, I get a "blue swirly busy" for about 10 seconds, and If I click "cancel" on the properties windows it won't close until that 10 seconds is elapsed. During that timeout the desktop is busy, meaning I can't right-click the desktop
and get the context, launch a desktop shortcut or move an icon, but the taskbar and quick-launch stuff works fine. This doesn't seem to take much in the way of cpu cycles, and the machine stays responsive otherwise.

The error happens on any shortcut, in any folder, whether or not is is on the desktop. Usually, however, if the shortcut is in a non-desktop folder, the error does not occur from the shortcut context menu but still occurs from the shortcuts propery window.

What I've done so far:

Users are administrators.
The error happens in SAFE MODE with no networking.
The error occurs when logged on as a different user.

A:Open File Location fails from any shortcut context menu giving a program association error dialog. Win 7 Pro x64.

OK! Found it! Fixed it.
The problem turned out to be one simple item in the "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell" key definition within the Folder progid.

The bad entry had a default value of "none" set for the Folder\shell key, and a working entry has either an empty (unset) default value or a null string default value. All of the other keys and values under the "Folder" progid remain the same and work correctly.
I have proven the problem by setting and testing that default value back and forth. It's repeatable.
It makes sense (now), knowing that the OpenContainingFolder ShellEx context menu extension class launches a new Explorer window via the Folder progid.

BAD...
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell]
@="none"

GOOD...
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell]

Chances are that I will never knlow exactly how this got changed, but should it happen again, I'm prepared.

I thank all who replied and suggested fixes. The suggested fixes led me to the correct area(s) of the registry to examine. I've learned a ton of stuff about how shell extensions are installed, programmed, and a bit about how to troubleshoot them. It would be
nice to claim elegant troubleshooting methods, but it's not true - it was just looking, testing and poking until finally stumbled upon.

When I double click on any excel file, only a grey window opens and not the file. Then, I need to go to file and select the file to view the file. Please help .

When you next try it, open the file, when you have grey window open, On the toolbar at the top, go to Window > Arrange > Tiled and you should see your file, then maximise it and close Excel.

Now the next time you click it you should get the file straight away.

I am using an ASP.NET 2.0 web application using the Interop assembly pointing to the Microsoft.Excel 12.0 COM to open and write to a spreadsheet.

I have set the permissions for the DCOM to allow NETWORK SERVICE to open the Excel application, but when I try to open the actual file I get Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC.

I have changed the website directory permissions to allow NETWORK SERVICE full access to the folder and I still cannot open the file.

Thoughts?

Was this ever solved? Outlook Express has problems with attachments unless you configure it propperly. The workaround would be, providing you can connect to your email, is to download the attachment from the web.Have a look at Blocked Outlook Express Attatchments ? - The Solution! or Free Outlook Express Extractor download - Extract outlook express ...

Hello I've been having trouble with my excel files.

Yesterday I edited one and today when I try to open it, an error message popped up and said that the file is a read-only file, hence cannot be opened. The similar thing has happened to several of my other files recently.

Am I making some ridiculously stupid mistake whilst saving the file or is there a virus on my computer?

Any help would be much appreciated as I don't know anything about computers :(


THANK YOU

A:Unable to open Excel Files

Hi hohohoo, welcome to TSF.

If you're conscious of a virus infection, you need to check with the Security team by doing the following:
http://www.techsupportforum.com/secu...oval-help.html

Otherwise, check if the files are indeed "Read-Only" - right clicking the file and checking it's attributes.

You could also try a Detect and Repair from within Office.
Open up Word, and go to Help > Detect and Repair.

Or



1. On the Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.
2. In the Exploring window, open the drive or folder that contains the file.
3. Click the file name.
4. On the File menu, click Properties.
5. Click the General tab.
6. Clear the Read-only check box.

Hi stevekim99. . .

Welcome to the Teh Support Forum - Vista Support!

Is it just this one file - or are you having problems with ALL Excel files?

Are you running Excel 2007 - and are you sure that the file extension is .xls and not .xlsx?

I have a user who is trying to open an excel attachment via a website. When clicking on the link she receives the pop up window asking if she would like to Open, Save, or Cancel her action. When she clicks open an error message appears indicating the file could not be located. The path is directing her to the temporary internet folder located on her pc. When she clicks save the file is saved and can be open.

I have cleared her temporary internet files, and her cookies. She is using windows xp, excel 2003 and IE 6, any suggestions?
