A small problem with Excel 2000, the shortcuts are not working? A friend has a few Excel 2000 spreadsheets which will not open with a shortcut. The file will open if you start Excel then go to “File” and “open” It does not matter where the file, old or new is located on the computer, it will not open from a shortcut.
I have tried several things, including re-installing Excel 2000 plus remove and re-installing the full Office 2000 programme, I’ve also tried the “Excel /unregserver” and “Excel /regserver” commands but this does not work? Without doing a full format and re-install does anyone have any ideas??????
The computer is networked with another, all Excel 2000 files work ok with shortcuts on the other computer? The problem is only with Excel 2000, all other software is fine.
The error message is :
"Cannot find the file [file name].XLS (or one of its components). Make sure the path and file name are correct and that all required libraries are available."
Am I right in thinking this maybe a possible Registry fault?
