How do i get into a spreadsheet when i get a message saying it can't be opened

Hi, what is the exact error code you receive? If you can provide the exact error code or message, will narrow down troubleshoot. To get around the problem, try starting Excel in safe mode. The command is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\EXCEL.EXE /s".

To run the command:

1. Copy the above command without inverted commas.
2. Click Start and paste by pressing "Ctrl + V" and press the Enter key.

See if this open Excel. Thereafter, exit Excel and try opening Excel again in normal mode without the "/s" switch at the end.

If still having issue, suspect some of the system files may be corrupted. Run Office setup and hit Repair when prompted.

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.

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.

Good Luck

Cursor and keyboard movment responds very slowly

Does the slow movement of cursor and keyboard seen only on excel? Given that your excel is not corrupted, it just could be the file size of the worksheet you are working is too big. But if the slowness is present even on small excel file, you may consider re-installing your excel.

But if the slowness is present even on other application, then the problem could be on your pc itself.

Exel files slowly open

Hi Sahil,

This can be difficult to resolve on the first pass because there is so many things to consider. I have no idea what your experience with excel or computer maintenance is. All my training in industry has told me is go for the "low hanging fruit" first (try the easiest stuff first).
1) When did you last defrag your computer. That can be a fast easy fix. I don't know what your operating system is but you may have a defrag program included as part of the system.
2) How much memory do you have installed and if you have added some did it match what you had installed because memory will run as fast as the slowest stick installed.
3) Any other programs running in the background? My antivirous program is scheduled to scann at specific times when I would normally not be trying to be productive with my favorite programs. I have all the memory installed that I can and if my antivirous program is running and I try to do something else my system tempts me to persue fishing instead of computing just so I could use my machine as a anchor.
4) Do you have an infection of malware to contend with? When has the last time been that you scanned your system for system leaches.
5) was there a specific time that the software slowed down and if so what was done to the system at that time. Can it be undone?
6) Are you the only person on the machine?
7) Just how slow is slow? My machine takes 2 sec to load excel - 5 sec to load a spread sheet that I have been collecting data on stocks for 3 years but is a rocket processing the data and developing the individual graphs that is responding to the macros commands.
So is your expectations of the program realistic?
Investigate your issue and try to reason out what could be going on. Collect more data about your system so I can better guess from wayover here.
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}
Evenif this is not what you wanted to hear please don't forget to rate the answer. I can always learn from your opinion of the service provided.
Glad to be of assistance

Speed of excel is v slow

i wold check your RAM on your PC to see if you have enough, also when you are working with excel are you making scans of your pc with your anti virus ? this could slow you down. I would suggest that you get "tune up utilities 2008" as this can give your pc a good clean up and speed up.
