    Hi

    When you double-click an Excel workbook in Windows Explorer, a dynamic data exchange (DDE) message is sent to Excel, instructing it to open the workbook that you double-clicked.

    It looks like your Excel2007 has "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) " checkbox set.

    If the Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) setting is selected, Excel ignores DDE messages sent to it by other programs. As a result, the DDE message sent to Excel by Windows Explorer is ignored, and Excel does not open the workbook that you double-clicked.
    To fix it:
    1.Open Excel2007 and click the Microsoft Office blob Button in the top left-hand corner, and then click Excel Options.
    2.Click Advanced, and clear the "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) check box" in the General area.
    3.Click OK.

    let us know if this fixes it for you
