    Hi,
    My friend's excel program is unable to open excel files from any other computers. He has Windows 10, and a new Office program for 10.
    When he tries to open other people's files it says corrupt or something.
    Do you know how to fix this?
    Thank you,
    Debby

    Which version(s) of Excel are running on these other PCs? Could you ask him to provide the exact error message he gets when trying to open these files? Do the files he's trying to open have XLS and/or XLSX file extensions?
