    Outlook & EXCEL attachments (Outlook 2000 / EXCEL)

    Have a user who has problems running EXCEL attachments from OUTLOOK.

    Here's the symptoms:
    * He can do "Save As" and open the attachment from disk
    * When he double-click on the attachment, EXCEL starts (even if it is already open, still a new instance opens). Nothing happens however other than Outlook generating an error dialog saying: The system cannot find the file specified
    * User uses EXCEL97
    * Had him re-install EXCEL: no changes
    * ALL other attachments work flawlessly

    Heard people say is "a known problem" and nothing can be done... anyone who recognizes this and maybe knows how to fix?

    Thnks!
