    Whenever I recieve an Excel e-mail attachement, I have to save it and then go and get it to open it. It will not open simply by double clicking any more. It says it cannot find the right software to open the file. I do not know why it suddenly stopped working, but more importantly, how do I fix it?!:eek:

    Can you double-click the file and open it once you have downloaded it and saved it to your desktop? or do you have to open Excel and choose File-Open from the menu?
