OPENING EXCEL FILES

I have many Microsoft Excel saved documents on my system running Windows XP. All have the Excel icon and .xls after the name. Properties states ‘Opens with Microsoft Excel’ and I have checked and also reset the file ASSOCIATION. Double clicking starts opening Excel but I then get the error message ‘Microsoft excel has encountered a problem & needs to close’

If I open Excel first and click FILE OPEN and then Browse for the file it will open normally. No changes have been made to the set up of Windows or Excel. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Poodz

Open Excel and run Detect and Repair from the Help menu.
