    Excel spreadsheets open blank.


    Recently my Excel programs began to open with a blank Excel screen. I can go to Open in the blank sheet and open the spreadsheet from there. This happening on my Dell Latitude E5500 Laptop. This has been working fine for years. My PC is opening my Excel spreadsheets correctly. Both my PC Dell 660 and my laptop are using the same Excel 2007 software. Any ideas?

    :)

    WP Excel won't open Excel 2010 Spreadsheets

    I use Office 2010 (32 bit) on my Win7 Pro computer.

    I have been using my Windows Phone 7.5 to open/edit Excel 2010 files stored on Skydrive for some time.

    Suddenly, WP will not open the same files which it could open just awhile ago.

    I have used Excel 2010 to edit these spreadsheets since the last time I opened them with WPExcel and saved them in the same format as before.

    WPExcel states:

    "Can't Open. Excel doen't recognize the file format "<filename"".

    Yet these files open without issue with Excel 2010.

    Any suggestions?



    Update - WPExcel will open cloud Excel files that have not been recently opened by Excel 2010. Those files operate properly. However, once I open the same files with Excel 2010 and save them - WPExcel can not open them. Problem with Excel 2010?

    Excel Opens Two Files With One Blank


    I can't seem to catch a break since buying a new computer with Windows 10 and UltraHD. I've noticed that every time I open an Excel file, it not only opens that file, but it also opens a blank workbook as well. This has never happened to me on any previous computer or previous version of Excel and googling the issue has been futile thus far.

    To be clear, I'm totally fine with Excel opening a blank workbook if I just click on the Excel shortcut on my taskbar, but I do NOT want Excel to open up a blank workbook when let's say I'm opening up a separate spreadsheet for a financial model.

    Once again, any help is greatly appreciated!

    Excel spreadsheets open blank.

    Unable to open Excel for Mac spreadsheets on my HTC HD2

    Hi Susan,

    Have you tried saving the Excel spreadsheet in a different format? Instead of saving as XLSX, try saving in the older "Excel 97-2004 Workbook (.xls)" format. The steps below explain how to save the document in a different format:

    • Create a file, or open the file that you want to save.
    • On the File menu, click Save As.
    • In the Save As box, type a name for the file.
    • On the Format drop-down menu, choose Excel 97-2004 Workbook (.xls).

    While you're trying that, I'm going to move your thread into the Windows Phone forums and see if anyone there can help us out. I'm not quite sure what formats WinMo 6.5 supports and there aren't too many things we can try on the Excel
    side.

    Let me know if changing the format helps!
