    Hi All,
    Windows 7 on a new system. Office 2003 fresh install.
    When I double click to open an Excel file, I get an error message that reads:
    "There is a problem sending the command to the program."
    And, the document fails to open.
    However, if I start Excel and open the doc from within Excel, it opens fine.
    Thank you for any ideas.
    Bill

    hxl7:

    Sounds to me like Excel is not properly associated with xls files. Have you tried a repair of your Office installation?
