Hello everyone nice to be here. I work for a company that has been updating there applications from Office 2000 to Office 2007. Been some problems here and there but one really sticks out. When people go to open a excell document with a shortcut to that file excell will open but will not display any data. You have to click minimize to get it to do so. I have checked for add ins and updates that might conflict and have not found any. All add ins are turned off by default. My computer I work on does not do it because when I started I did not start with Office 2000 I went ahead and installed 2007. Also I did a fresh install from scratch on my computer most other employees that get a computer have been ghosted from a image.

Hi nerdboy20

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

Does the same behavior occur if they create a fresh shortcut to the Excel file?
If not, the target of the original shortcut may need to be updated or just deleted and recreated.

Let us know what you find.

Afraid no change. I deleted all the old shortcuts after the update. Alot of the files are saved on a server for public viewing for the company. Some are pretty old all the way from 2000. Mine does not have a problem opening them. I also noticed with a couple that if you put excel 2000 back on the computer and use 2000 to open program it does not do it. Also I made a spreadsheet on my computer with 07 and sent it as a attachment to another computer. They had that trouble I talked about and when they did some changes and sent it back to me I could open it without any problems.
