    hello, by stating what you have above, did you mean

    A. you double left click on the icon bearing the excel logo and ONLY the excel window opens but the file itself is not opened in the excel window?

    B. you double left click on the excel icon but it does not open, so you right click on it and then open?

    C. ALSO, do you encounter this error with just excel or all other programs of the "MS OFFICE" category

    D. AND, does this happen with all programs in windows?

    a brief reply would do, and greatly assist in solving your problem.

    thank you! :)

Excel workbook error


I came across this issue today. An update to the Office Compatibility Pack that was still on a computer caused the default PROGRAM for .docx and .xlsx files to be the Microsoft Open XML Converter program and make the "Default Programs" in Control Panel think that Excel and Word were actually the Microsoft Open XML Converter scholarship essay writing assistance program as well.UNINSTALLING the Office Compatibility Pack in Programs and Features and then a simple reboot fixed the issue.
Also:
1: Try to repair it manually when MS Excel does not automatically STARTS File recovery mode.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click OPEN.
Now select the corrupted workbook that you want to open.
Click the arrow NEXT to the Open button, and then click Open and Repair.
Choose either Repair (to recover as much of the FILE data) or Extract data (to extract values and formula when repair process is not successful).
2: Open with Open Office: Try to open your Excel file in Open Office. It is an open-source Office suite that is able to open & SAVE Microsoft Excel files.
3: Save in HTML Format: Open your Excel file and save it in HTML format. By saving the workbook in HTML format, you may be able to filter out the corrupted elements.
4: Save in SYLK Format: Open your Excel file and save it in SYLK format. By saving the workbook in SYLK format, you may be able to filter out the corrupted elements.
5: Try 3rd party software like Excel Repair Toolbox

My excel sheet is not opening


assuming you have Excel sw on your PC.
Assuming you are running XP.
Assuming you can start your Excel and Open any excel file using File/Open within excel.

You must associate Excel file with Excel program in your Windows Explorer.
Fastest way is Browse to any excel file with your Windows explorer (NOT IE)
Right click and select Open with...
Browse to find your Excel MSOffice program
Select Use always to use this program
OK
