    I recently upgraded Office 2003 Professional with Service Pack 2 and now I find when I click the Excel icon (Desktop or tool bar) and I get the messages: 1. Please wait while Windows configures Microsoft Professional Edition Office 2003. 2. Fatal error durring installation. The other programs (Access, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher) seem to be working OK. I have tried to remove KB918419 (using Control Panel/Add or remove programs and window components) so I could reinstall it but it reported the same kind of message as that above. I have a dial-up internet connection and I really do not want to dump the pull the SP2 again. Do you have any suggestions?

    Perhaps it might help to uninstall only Excel, and reinstall it from your CDs.

    EBSchrader,
    Office 2003 is installed as a group and I can not find a way to install Excel only. I did find and run the repair function and Excel is now working.

    Problem resolved.

    Thanks for your help,

    R_Prochnow

    I'm delighted that the repair function cured your problem. For future reference, however, you can select individual programs to install from Office 2003 by using Custom Install.
