[mso] Re: cannot find file error in Excel (looking for component?)

Wilson & Linda -- Thanks for the input.  

Registry key was fine (same as other computers that work).

Windows Explorer, Folder Options, Files Types, Microsoft Excel
Worksheet, Open, Edit was different from other computers.  I
changed it to match the computers that work, but I'm still
getting the same error.  Use DDE is selected and I copied those
options too.

The curious thing, Linda, is you said: "One thing you can try,
.....Then hold your shift key down and RIGHT click on it and
choose "Open With".....scroll down thru the list and select
Excel....I know it's already selected, but let's see if this
re-applies Excel to these files in Windows" 

BUT it wasn't selected.  I selected it and did as you suggested.
 Didn't help.

Any other ideas, ANYONE, about where I can go for further help? 
I hate to bother our SysAdmin, because I can do some problem
solving and he has a huge school district with about a zillion
computers to deal with.  If I couldn't use the computer at all,
I'd bother him, but otherwise I'll see what I can do.  Also, I
don't want my computer's drive re-ghosted ;)

Linda said:
I think it's in the edit part of folder options>file types....if
I
remember correctly from my troubleshooting days, it's that %
that's
missing and therefore causes Windows to be unable to open these
excel
files....but I don't have that in Windows XP so I can't check
mine

Peoria.....if my memory serves me right.....it's something to do
with
spaces in names....so, try removing all the spaces in the names
of the
files and folders in the path to that file and see if it opens
then....if it does, then the problem is in the Files Types place
I told
you to look before
