Try bringing up the Excel options, go to advanced and then scroll down to the
"General" section. Make sure that "Ignore other applications that use
Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)" is not checked. This fixed my problem. Hope it
helps.

Whenever I am opening an excel 2007 document a it is unable to open and a message is displayed " There was a problem sending the command to the program", what can i do??


You can open the program first then in the file tab click open and search the file on your computer. If that's what your doing then the file might be currpt and it might not be wise for it to be open anyways as it might contain malicious factors

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.

Hyperlink other document in excel button


The easy way (but labor intensive) is to put the file names in a column (can be any name you want or the pdf file name), right click on a cell, hit insert hyperlink, and in the address field at bottom, put in the file pdf file name. You would have to do this for each of your 100 files.

If you want to automate it, create a column with the directory path name, a 2nd column with the full file names, a 3rd column where you concatenate the two previous columns to create the full path, and then use the hyperlink command to provide the link:


Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf ../excel/file1.pdf file1.pdf ../excel/ file2.pdf ../excel/file2.pdf file2.pdf ../excel/ file3.pdf ../excel/file3.pdf file3.pdf

Here are the formulas behind this:
A B C D Folder name Filename Concatenated LINK ../excel/ file1.pdf =CONCATENATE(A2,B2) =HYPERLINK((C2),B2)
../excel/ file2.pdf =CONCATENATE(A3,B3) =HYPERLINK((C3),B3)
../excel/ file3.pdf =CONCATENATE(A4,B4) =HYPERLINK((C4),B4)
This should work like a charm and the other advantage is that excel won't rename your path locally depending on weather a file is open or not).

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.
or
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.

IF the installation was legitimate in the 1st place (I'm sure it was, but just advising), then the problem is probably due to a damaged installation file for Office. I think you need to reinstall the whole package after getting rid of all original traces of the programme. This tool is good and will help you delete all the old registration entries and files. Run it and try installing Office again.
