Problem Opening Excel Workbooks

  Whammo 09:24 12 Aug 2003

When I attempt to open a file in Excel (Office XP version)the file does not at first appear to open. A second attempt is required before the file will appear.

Any suggestions?

What OS? What else is running at the same time? You may find that the software is taking longer to load than you thought and this appears to you that it is not reacting to your first command. After clicking the file you want, try waiting a little longer and watch to see if the cursor changes.

I notice it too. I find that Excel opens reasonably quickly and then the following messages appear at the bottom left of the screen:

Requesting virus scan
Opening (File Name)

The timing seems to vary depending on the file size. Is this the same with you?
