    Excel is giving me a hard time...I cannot open files directly but must open Excel then open my files through the application. I get an error message stating..."cannot find c:\WINNT\program files\profile\mewing\DESKTOP\etc..... Make sure that the path and file name is correct and that all required libraries are available"
    This is annoying the hell outta me...is this a registry problem? note:Office is located on another server and I have read/write access to an M:\Apps folder.

    Make sure you don't have IGNORE OTHER APPLICATIONS checked under Tools-Options-General tab. I'd probably exit Excel and go back in before I retry.

    Lemme know if that does not help you.
