    Hi, Can anyone help please.

    When trying to open any Excel document an error message appears[attachment=84799rint.JPG].

    I can access documents from my 'Recent List' but the same files
    cant be opened from my documents.

    I have reinstalled Office 2007 and also tried the repair option but the error message still appears.

    Can anyone help please?

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    Try the following:
    - Click the Microsoft Office Button.
    - Select Excel Options.
    - Click Advanced.
    - Look for the "Ignore other applications" check box in the General area.
    - If this check box is ticked, clear it and click OK.
    - If the check box is clear, tick it and click OK, then repeat the above steps and clear it.

    So "Ignore other applications" should end up cleared.

    If the message is the same no matter what file you are trying to open, then in the Excel Options, under the Advanced section (I think) there is an option called something like 'At startup open all files in' - do you have a folder specified there? If so, check what files are in that folder, especially shortcut files; if not, check both of your XLSTART folders for shortcut files.
