Excel opens by itself and other Excel files as designed with the exception of one shared network file.
Other users can open the file at will, displaying the contained data.
The problem is with one user/system. User attempts to open the file and there is no data. No error messages, etc.
Copying the file to the local drive and opening it have the same results as opening from the network drive. The file opens, no errors but no data.

I have deleted the Temp and Recent files.
I have uninstalled/reinstalled Office.
I was going to delete the book.xlt file but this user does not have one.

When you copy the file across to the local drive, did the size of the file change ?

I resolved the issue. The file was marked as open/Temp for her last session on the server. I opened the file and then unchecked "Safe mode" under the Active X Settings from within Trust Center.
