Question about Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Full Version for PC
When I look up a .xls or .doc file in Windows Explorer and double click the file, the Excel or Word programs open, but the file itself does not open. Obviously, the file association is correct, because the correct program opens. The file opens correctlyif I start Excel or Word first, then use the File:Open commandfrom the menu or by keyboard shortcut Ctrl+O.
This problem does not effect any other file type in Windows Explorer. All other programs, including Publisher, start correctly and open the file as well. Does anyone know why these two programs do not open files with a doubleclick, and how to fix it? Ever since I installed Office 2007 under Windows Vista, my double-clicks on any Office file correctly opens the application, which promptly says it cannot find the file. If I then go to the file Open, I can successfully open that file by browsing. This applies to Word, Excel, Powerpoint equally. What gives? The association is correct by the way. Excel file doesn't open I,ve tried all of the above suggestions, but still not working. I've unistalled and reinstalled, then tried the suggestions again, still no luck. Help Please. Peter, Beijing
In Microsoft Excel 97, on the Tools menu, click Options. Click the General tab. Clear the Ignore Other Applications checkbox, and click OK.
In Excel 2007, Click Office Button, Excel Options, Advanced.
Look for General.
Clear the Ignore Other Applications checkbox.
Now, as to why this was checked in the first place, ewan ko na!

It could be an assiciation problem with .doc and .docx, but that doesnt sound like it. Sounds like an inherent 2007 problem. If you can, try a reinstall of Office. If it doesn't work, you could always try a copy of Open Office, or, failing that, Office 2003.
