I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can you open the workbook directly from inside MS-Excel, using the "File"/"Open" menu item, or the [CTRL]+[O] keyboard shortcut?

Is the message displayed on each occasion you try to launch (open/double-click) the workbook file from the Windows Explorer, Windows Desktop, or similar?

Which version of MS-Excel are you using?

This is more-than-likely an issue with the "DDE" (Dynamic Data Exchange) settings, but the version of MS-Excel you are using will dictate where the setting is located.

(MS-Excel 2013, for instance, shows this setting within the "Excel Options" / "Advanced" / "General" area)

MS Excel 2013 - Excel Options - Advanced - General
