Hi Santosh

Office 2000 now has a "Detect and Repair" option on their CD. Insert and run the Office 2000 CD and you will see this option.

You could also have a read of these MS articles to see if any apply:

Last but not least, with Excel closed, go to Start>Run and type in:
Excel /regedit
Then click OK. Notice the space after the switch. This will force Excel to re-register itself.

For a full list of switches go here:

Good luck
