I have a user that has a spreadsheet that we can only open and view in Full Screen mode.  When we try to view in  Normal the spread sheet dissapears like it is not even open. This is a productin spreadsheet.  We have just upgraded to Office 2007 but it does the same thing in Office XP.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

    it may have been Corrpted some how on the version change.. Was it doing the same thing before the upgrade.. Can you post the file so i can test... remove the data if need be..

    are you getting any errors??

    It actually is being pulled from an Intranet website.  I have gone to the location where it is stored and opened it with 2007 and it looks just fine.  We are actually also working in compatabliity mode for the tiem being until we get all the users converted.  It is doing the same thing in XP.    This is very odd.  When I reopened after saving to my network drive it is working fine.  Suppose we may have to resave it or recreate the web link?

    Here is the one from the Intranet site that all the users are seeing.

    Thanks in advance

    We were using a product called "Net Objects" and we put the files in a shared network drive and  allowed certain users to access them.  Then we created a link simislar to a web link.  
    I am not totally sure what product we are using at this point but I know we are in the process of changing.
