When trying to open and Excel attachment in Outlook 2000, I get the error message "The system can not find the file specified."  I can open up Word attachments fine with no error message.  I have tried reinstalling and repairing Outlook.  I have also updated it to Outlook 2002 (XP) and I get the same results.  I use a Windows XP operating system.  Any help you can give me would be appreciated.
