I think if there is already an instance of Excel Application is running, you won't get that error in 2013.
Open a blank Excel workbook and then try to open the file in question and see what happens.

are you trying to open it from the email or trying to reopen it?
it's probably been deleted. try opening it from the email again and then saving it somewhere else

That's a hidden folder.  But you can open it by double clicking a PDF that's also in your Inbox, then going to File | Properties on the PDF, and clicking the LOCATION hyperlink.  Visually search for your missing file.  If it's not there, its been cleared out by Windows (because it's also a temp folder).  Sadly, it won't go to recycle bin becaue of the kind of folder it is.

Take care saving to attachements.  Make sure to Save As to your desired location (or drag to the desktop) before making edits.

Hope this helps
