MS Office 2007 Excel files not opening

I have MS Office 2007, Windows 7. When I double click on an xls file Excel opens up but it is just a empty excel program. It is similar to opening up excel and then just closing the book1 that opens up automatically. Just a grey background. Also I can't open up xls files by doing File > Open or dragging xls files into an already opened excel. And double clicking an xls does not work. I tried doing a detect and repair on excel but that did not seem to fix anything. Any ideas? Thanks!

had the same issue here and was able to fix without creating new user profiles. In my case, I deleted the Excel registry keys for the user under: HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Excel <-- Close all Excel windows and delete this entire folder. The workbook opens OK after this.

Hi, maybe the excel file has been corrupted. Did you see the file recovery mode? I think, it will help to automatically repair to be able to open the file.
