I have office 2007 professional installed on XP Pro. This was connected to domain for our office but now this PC is setup at a remote office and connects via VPN.
Everything runs fine, email, word IE8 etc.
Problem is, when I click on an Excel file (local or remote) it opens Excel but not the file itself. I then have to open file from the menu.
I have tried a number of suggested fixes available on the net and uninstalled office, re-installed it, and updated service packs with no luck.
I now have been told the second PC at the remote office is suffering the same issue with Excel.
