I have the same problem Phil. When I click on a saved workbook (most of mine
are now of the 2003 version) - I get a blank Excel 2007 window and eventually
- maybe 2 minutes later, the workbook opens. I found a 'fix' in some group on
the net that suggested adding "%1" (including quotation marks) to the end of
the open command in the Tools/Folder Options/File Types/Advanced area of
Explorer. That seems to work, but, now after they open quicker, as soon as I
click in the spreadsheet, I get an error message that says it is already open
and asks if I want to open a second version of the file.
Kinda frustrating - I don't mess with stuff - just use it out of the box -
it seems the file types stuff should be standard.
I am using XP-Pro SP2
Can anyone help??
