    Double click won't open

    When I double click on an Excel document to open it, the screen does not show the document open - but does show that Excel looks like it's starting to open, no sign of the document and a very strange looking screen. When I try to close Excel (or what there is of it showing) I get a dialog box asking me if I want to save my changes. I have made no changes because I can't even see the worksheet! If I open Excel first then open the worksheet I have no problems. No problems with double clicking to open Word documeents either. This happens with all Excel spreadsheets, not just one or two. Any ideas as to what the problem is and how to resolve it? Thanks

    It sounds to me like the Excel module that deals with DDE has been corrupted. I would try reinstalling Excel.
