Excel file now not opening?

I have an excel file containing all my contacts telephone numbers. I have placed it on my desktop (Win 98SE) as a shortcut. It was working fine until a couple of days ago. Now when I double click the shortcut I get a window which says:

"The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available."

Insert the "Microsoft Office 2000 Professional" disk and click OK.

I do have the MS Office 2000 Pro CD but why is it coming up with this error? It was working fine a couple of days ago with no problems.

Should also say that if I open Excel first and then go to File, Open and select the file I want it opens OK.

Sorry Guys. Don't panic. I put the CD it was asking for in and it is all working fine again.

Will tick this as resolved.
