I am still running Windows XP with Office 2007. Suddenly neither Excel or Word will automatically open existing files when I click on them from windows explorer. I can go to the Open option in the menu bar for Excel or Word, select the file to open and it will then open properly. Are there any option settings that allow for the files to open when click on them? I do not receive any error messages nor does the event viewer provide any error messages.

does it give any error messages

in the file manager
do you have the word/excel icon next to the file ?

if you right click on the file - do you get an "open with" option

have a read here - see if the file is associated with the program
