Open a document on Microsoft

what are you tying to use to view the file ? is it windows file explorer that you are trying to open the file from. I suspect as I have a close family member who will go to a program like excel and then try and open say a word file via excel and wonder why it does not work.
You might be trying to open a later word version like docx and your word may only handle doc file types from earlier versions.
what version of word do you have and what is the file extension doc or docx ?
There may exist a converter from microsoft that will patch earlier word versions to allow it to open docx file types.

How i recover my demages excell files

Close down Excel, re-open it and try to open the file again.
If this doesn't work, restart the computer, open up Excel and try to open the file again.
If this doesn't work, delete the contents of your c:windows emp directory then reboot. Try again
If this doesn't work, open Excel in Safe Mode. This will disable VBA and Add-ins.
  • Click on Start then Run then enter (including the quotes and the /s extension): "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeexcel.exe" /s ["C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice10excel.exe" /s (for Excel 2002, Office XP, click cancel if the MS Office Installer starts, Excel in safe mode will still start)].
  • Try to open the file.
If this doesn't work, be sure to scan the file for viruses. If you don't find a virus, find the file in Explorer, right click on it and rename it, replacing the .xls extension with the .doc extension. Try to open it as Word document.

If this doesn't work, try to determine if the file is unrecoverable on the disk. Open the file in Explorer and try to copy it to another location.
  • If you can copy the file to another location, skip to step 9. If not, the actual sectors on the disk may be corrupted.
  • If the data is valuable enough to you, seek professional services as a damaged hard disk file recovery is not for the faint at heart.
If the recovered file won't open or you could copy the file to another location, try to open the file in a more recent version of Excel. As the version numbers increase, their ability to recover corrupt files increases. If this doesn't work or such a version of Excel is not available, see if some other spreadsheet application is and try to open the file in that program.

If Microsoft can't help you (see the tips section) and you've exhausted all the free methods above for damaged disk recovered or copyable files there are a number of excellent commercial applications which will recover your files almost immediately.

Cant open Excel files. Not even from emails with Excel attached

either your MS Office Installation is currupt or your system in infected with a virus.
Please scan your system using a good virus scanner. (Please uninstall any prior scanner if you have and pl avoid using McAfee for the time being).

Now open your excel go to Office button
Office Button --> Excel Options --> Resources --> Diagnose
if problem comes during diagnosis, please connect your system to internet and if fails, please reinstall office again.

Word & Excel won't open files when doubleclicked in Windows Explorer

Excel may have "Ignore other applications" selected. See THIS Microsoft Knowledgebase Article.

Try going to Excel Options; Advanced tab; and under the 'General' heading: uncheck the box that says: Ignore other Applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE).

Repair a corrupt excel file by following steps:

  • Now select your corrupt file and click on the arrow next to open button.
  • Select Open & repair option and click on the open button.
  • Save as the file and give the new name.

Additionally you can try 3rd party excel repair software if Open & Repair fails to repair corrupt file.
