Occasional Visitor

I have both Office 365 and Office 2007 installed on my computer and have had for at least 5 years.  No changes to the computer recently other than the usual Microsoft updates.

I have the Office 365 version of Excel selected as the default program for xlsx files, but when I attempt to open any Excel file, Excel 2007 opens but does not open the file.  I can open either Excel 2007 or Excel 365 and then open any file without a problem.  But I cannot just double-click on an Excel document and get it to open.  This is a new issue that I've only seen today.

Any clues for me?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi @mkeener 

 

I think your sheet might be hidden, please follow these steps Go to View > Unhide

A new window will pop-up and you should find your sheet out there, select the sheet click OK
