    Just in the last two days, I have encountered the following problem with Excel 97: When in either Windows Explorer or in Outlook Express, if I double click the Excel file I want to open, all I get are the menu bar and the tool bars. The spreadsheet itself does not appear; I get either the Exploring or Outlook Express screen that was active when I double clicked the file name. This is NOT a problem when I double click on Word files. Sure would appreicate ideas on what to do! Thanks!!

    Does your computer then freeze up?

    G'day Qroozn
    Thanks for your reply. No, the computer doesn't freeze up, per se. I can see that Excel has been opened since the Excel logo comes up on the bar on the bottom of the screen. If I click on the bar to activate Excel, even though I can't se the spreadsheet, the menu bar is active and I can, for example, click on View/Full Screen and then get to see the sheet. Any ideas?
    Thanks mate! (P.S. Used to live in Sydney -- best place on the planet, by far!) Phil

    I am having the same problem as this gentleman, but with Excel 2002. Any ideas on how to make it work without having to utilize the full screen view?
