    If I have my FoxPro app open and then try to open an Excel file from an e-mail in Outlook all I get is what I would call a shell of Excel. The part of the screen where the data should be is not there, I can see the screen behind the Excel window. I can click on the tool bars and click file and such and that stuff works but I can't get my data. If I open Excel and then browse to a file it will open. As soon as I close the FoxPro app and try the proccess again I can open the Excel file from the attachent with no problem. I saw on Microsofts site that they suggested to go to Excel tools, options, general tab then click ignore other programs but that caused more problems than anything.
