Excel 2007 can't open files with spaces in names
Posted on 2010-09-08
This is a problem that suddenly started happening today. I was mucking around with Excel trying to get it to open each new file in a new window (problem solved thanks to EE) and I must have clicked somethign I shouldn't have.
Excel is suddenly unable to open files with spaces in the name. For example, if my file name is "My hours.xlsx" and I double click on it, Excel tells me "My.xlsx" could not be found, and then it tells me "hours.xlsx" could not be found.
As far as I can tell, it's only Excel that is having this problem so I don't think it was caused by changes to Windows, but I could be wrong...
