My Excel desktop shortcuts have stopped working.

I can open the all my workbooks. They are not corrupted.
I can open them from the recently used list or go to open file.
When click on a Excel shortcut Excel will open but the workbook will not.

UNRegserver/REGserver appears to do nothing when Excel.exe is started from the "run" box.

Hi Greg,

Check this:

Excel
File
Options
Advanced
General Section
Ignore other applications that use DDE

Make sure that setting (Ignore other applications that use DDE) is OFF.


Thanks,

Alan.
