What if excel files won't open? How to fix it?


Among the many problems that arise in your hardware system, there is a problem with files. And today we will just consider one of them. So!


You have an excel file, you double-click on it with the left mouse button. The computer thinks a little, and then "tells" you that the file was not found. Naturally, the excel file won't open. But if you try to open this file through "Open", then in this case the file will open without problems. What's the matter? Well, this is most likely the result of either a glitch or a virus .


The solution to this problem is quite simple and accessible to any "teapot".


First, run your anti-virus utility and check your system for viruses. if something is found, then, naturally, all viral "slag" must be removed. And further, we will "shaman" in the system.


Open Windows Explorer and from the Tools menu open the Folder Options option. In this option, click on the "Files of type" tab. Immediately you will see a list of "Registered file types": choose the xls type. Next, click on "Advanced" - "Open" - "Edit".

It should read the following: "C: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ Office11 \ EXCEL.EXE" / e. If your version is Office10, then \ Office10 \ (not \ Office11 \) should be listed. Be sure to include quotation marks! There must be a "birdie" next to the "DDE message" field, and the field itself must contain: [open ("% 1")] and -Ok-Ok. Restart your computer and try to open the excel file. In 70% of cases, it will open.


But if, for some reason, the file still does not open, then we make such a move.


We go to the "Registry Editor": "Start" - "Run", in the "Open" field, write the regedit command and click on "OK" (or press the "Enter" key).

You will see several system key branches, among which there is this: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \. Follow it along this path: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT \ Excel.Sheet.8 \ shell \ Open \ command. On the right side of the panel, click on the default setting. Place the cursor on the "Edit" menu, click and in the drop-down menu click on the "Edit" command. Now it remains to remove% 1 from the end of the "Value" line.


In general, the entry should look like this: "C: \ Program Files \ Microsoft Office \ Office \ EXCEL.EXE". There must be quotation marks at the beginning and at the end of the record!


Click on "Ok", restart the hardware and try to open the file with a double click: 99% of the excel file opens again!

Good luck!
