Is it MS Office 2003 ?
Can you open Excel by clicking on it's icon?
If so, go to Control Panel>Add/Remove programs> scroll down to Microsoft Office 2003. Click on change. A box will open up and you and choose "repair and fix". Let it run . it should fix it.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Excel 2003 worksheet slow in 2007


Hi Lee, I have recently experienced the same thing. When Excel 2007 or later opens an Excel 97-2003 .xls file, there are major issues of speed. The file is opened in compatibility mode. The best thing to do would be to open the file, then save as (keep the same name if you like) an Excel 2007 .xlsx document (or .xlsm document if there are macros). Close the file, then reopen it, and the compatibility mode issue will be gone. You can now use the newly saved file as a normal Excel 2007 file. Hope this helped.

Hyperlink other document in excel button


The easy way (but labor intensive) is to put the file names in a column (can be any name you want or the pdf file name), right click on a cell, hit insert hyperlink, and in the address field at bottom, put in the file pdf file name. You would have to do this for each of your 100 files.

If you want to automate it, create a column with the directory path name, a 2nd column with the full file names, a 3rd column where you concatenate the two previous columns to create the full path, and then use the hyperlink command to provide the link:


Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf ../excel/file1.pdf file1.pdf ../excel/ file2.pdf ../excel/file2.pdf file2.pdf ../excel/ file3.pdf ../excel/file3.pdf file3.pdf

Here are the formulas behind this:
A B C D Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf =CONCATENATE(A2,B2) =HYPERLINK((C2),B2)
../excel/ file2.pdf =CONCATENATE(A3,B3) =HYPERLINK((C3),B3)
../excel/ file3.pdf =CONCATENATE(A4,B4) =HYPERLINK((C4),B4)
This should work like a charm and the other advantage is that excel won't rename your path locally depending on weather a file is open or not).

Deleting file from Excel also from recently created documents.


Hi jv_oberg,

The recent documents area of excel is just a snapshot of what it last opened, it's not really linked that document to excel. Eventually, after you open enough documents it will fall off the list. However, if it something that you would like to change, you can

  1. Click on Office button, and then click on Word Options (in Word 2007) or Excel Options (in Excel 2007) or PowerPoint Options (in PowerPoint 2007) in the bottom of Office Menu.
  2. Go to the Advanced tab.
  3. Scroll down to the Display section.
  4. Set the value for Show this number of Recent Documents: to 0 (zero). no-of-recent-docs.jpg
  5. Click OK button.
  6. Repeat steps above again, and set back the value for the number of Recent Documents to show to its original default, i.e. 17. If you don’t want this particular Office 2007 application to remember any Recent Documents, you can leave the value at 0 and skip this step.


That will clear your recent documents.

Good Luck,

Mark

Microsoft excell


If you go to MY RECENT DOCUMENTS, (it should be in C:\\Documents & Settings) you chould see the Excel document that you are trying to open. Double click on that document and it should open.

Another way to get the document open is to do a search. Go to START, Search, For files and folders. Type in the name of the document you want to open and then you can open it as described above.

Hope this helps Loringh
