    I'm using the Windows XP operating system and had Microsoft Office installed on it a while ago. All the applications were working fine when I first got it. Yesterday, when I tried to open Microsoft Excel I get the message that 'the feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available', and it asks me to insert the 'Microsoft Office 2000 Premium' disk and click ok. Unfortunately, I don't have this disk because it was someone else that installed Office on my computer for me. I don't understand why it's not letting me use Microsoft Excel and why I get this message from Windows Installer every time I try to use the application. :confused:

    It was working fine not long ago and I've used it to make several spreadsheet files, all of a sudden for no apparent reason I'm getting this message every time I try to use it.

    Can anyone give me any advice and has anyone had a similiar problem? I would appreciate any help.

    When it was installed, some aspects will be "installed on first use", and now it wants to install the function, for which you need the CD.

    You really cannot use it successfully (not to mention legally) if you do not own and have the disks.
