Excel 2007 - There was a problem sending the command to the program
Posted on 2010-11-22
Hi. I am struggling to open Excel documents from Windows Explorer. It is fine when opening from within Excel and all other Office apps are ok. Error message being returned states :There was a problem sending the command to the program". I am running Office 2007 on a Windows 7 machine and the issue is affecting both 97-2003 and 2007 files. Have checked other questions for a solution and the file association seems to be ok, also tried the "Ignore other applications the use DDE" solution but still stumped.
Any assistance greatly appreciated.
