    Cannot open Excel attachments (Outlook 2002)

    Do you get an error message, and if so, what does it say?

    Yes, it gives the error " The system cant find the file specified" !

    Now how can this be, as Outlook has a temp (OLK?) folder that holds the file until you save it somewhere else!!
    Also, the problem persists even after a full re-installation of Office 2002!!

    If that is the cause, the user also wouldn't be able to open Excel workbooks from Windows Explorer.
