> I used to be able to click an Excel spreadsheet and Excel would load then
open the spreadsheet. As of yesterday, I click an Excel spreadsheet and
Excel loads, but the spreadsheet does not. I have reloaded (repaired) Office
without any luck. I tried the Microsoft Knowledge Base and a Google search
but didn't come up with anything remotely close to my problem. Has anyone
experienced this and what was the solution?

Hi Al,

Have you tried re-associating XLS files with Excel? (open Windows
Explorer, select Tools | Folder Options | File Types).
