You have File Type Association (aka Content) redirection enabled.  Here is a nice explanation:

hi CarlWebster,

that's a very good link but its explaining about forcing redirect files from server to client or client-server for Citrix. but my problem is that i have some users they need to use local excel word ...etc not Citrix. and Citrix keep force opening those files... even if i Set Associations for local office for some certain files type.

Do the opposite of what that article talks about.

You want to check your published Excel and Word and NOT associate the file extensions.

problem solved. i removed the group that is forcing to open office applications from  the user account. so now user can open any app he need locally without any changes. but thanks again for that helpful information about the revers with Citrix
