    Part A is correct,I 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.

    I dont encounter this problem with any other programs on my PC.

    Thank you

    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! :)

Microsoft exel is not viewing, it is deleted

Excel will not open - Excel, the program, has been deleted? or you cannot open a single file - a single file has been deleted?

If a single file, you might try going to the folder where it was deleted (if you know), and hitting CTRL-Z, or check the Recycle Bin. Otherwise, it might be gone. You could look into programs that can recover deleted files.

If the program Excel has been deleted, you will need to reinstall it. All your settings and files should be fine and reinstated once it is reinstalled. You might first try a System Restore back to a date that it was working ok.

Right click and select Open with...
Browse to find your Excel MSOffice program
