I am trying to open Excel files from Excel 2010.  I browse to a mapped drive but when I open it appears no files are there. It will open files from remembered paths using this method.  If I go go straight to the mapped drive and double click the Excel document it opens just fine.

Nothing appears no matter what I select.  I tried "All files" but nothing.

How about if you copy the share path and filename into the file open box, when you click open does it find the file ok?

Given that you have tried the above steps, now try doing an Office 2010 Repair. Go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, click on Office, Change and then Repair.

After the repair is complete, restart and test again.

And if you replace the filename in the box with *.* and click open do the files show up?
