Opening Excel files in Explorer
Usually you can open any excel file by double clicking the file from within
Windows Explorer. Since some time for a mysterious reason this doesn't work
any more. Excel opens but not the file. Any ideas why this is so and what to
do about it?
Tanks for info,
Sometimes one of these works:

An Excel spreadsheet is being exported from a SQL database that I cannot
change, so I need to accomplish this in Excel.
Sometimes, some of the many numbers contain a dash which Excel then
interprets as a date. I can remove the dash programatically, but the number
is not correct afterwards.
For example, the number imported is 05-9078 which is displayed in Excel as
May-78, but is actually stored as 5/1/9078. Changing the cell format to
number or text gives me 2621833.

I exported an annual worklist from an Access table to Excel. There is

The month columns have the same coded data as the frequency colum
depending on when the task is done.
The problem is that I tried to make a pivot table to count how man
tasks (by frequency type) are done each month. Excel is counting th
