It means that Excel 2003 cannot find a certain DLL file.
The file might be corrupted or got deleted by user or maybe it was removed by another application (if DLL was a sherad file).

Please provide more details:
* OS the user is running on
* The name of missing DLL
* does it happen when user launches Excel from Start menu or only when opening certain XLS file.

In the meantime you can go to Control Panel -> Add remove Programs (in Windows XP) or Programs and Features (in Windows Vista or 7), find the MS Office entry, right-click and choose Repair.
