Re: excel software not started

MS Office repair:
Go to the "Add and Remove Programs" in your Control panel. Click the "Change" and do the 'repair program' utility.
That should fix it, good as new.
Be sure to have your INSTALL disk handy (for all Microsoft products).

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.
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

The file is corrupted in Excel 2007. What should i do?

Have you tried opening it up in another versions of Excel? Try 2003, 2010 or whatever. It can be effective.

Have you tried Open Office, Libre Office, Star Office and another? It can be useful too.

It`s possible the corruption is too bad. Have you used google to find any software? You can find both free or not, first are not so effective in my opinion. Try professional program, for example Recovery Toolbox for Excel.
You can use the trial version and decide how useful is it in this case.

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.

I don't think you can get any free MSOffice Excel. you can get a reader, but not anything you can use to create spreadsheets, etc. without purchase.

I would recommend trying and using that freeware. Works just as good, and opens most Microsoft office extensions.

MS Excel

Can you please provide any additional information, including error messages generated by Excel? Without knowing the specific error message, your surest solution is to completely uninstall Microsoft Office by going to your Control Panel and double-clicking "Add/Remove Programs". Then, once Microsoft Office is uninstalled, reinstall it using the CD.
