    Outlook Xp and Excel Attachments (XP)

    I have a couple of clients that cannot open some excel attachments - doesn't happen all the time. Both running Windows XP SP1 with Office/Outlook XP. The only way they can open it is to save it first. It essentially tries to open the file but nothing happens. They have removed the Ignore other applications tick in Options and reduced their Macro security to medium but it is still no different. any assistance would be great.

    In earlier versions, I've sometimes had problems opening attachments whose names duplicated previously opened attachments. Some problem with IE/Outlook's cache folders, perhaps. Even if the names are different, there could be a cache problem. They could try clearing the cache from IE (not sure if this clears the Outlook attachment cache folders).
