Problems opening Excel files

excel 2003 won't open files

I've been using 2003 Excel for years; I've got the 2007 version, but it's inferior to 2003. Anyway, naturally, my whole life in on Excel and I've never, ever had a major problem with it--until this morning. None of my Excel files would open; repeatedly, I got this "can't locate the file" message; restarted the computer several times--still got the message. I must say I panicked, because I've been far too lazy about backing up the files. When I googled the problem, your's was the first site I visited; and the first thing I tried was a suggestion from years ago (2006, I believe) about unchecking "ignore other applications" in the General Tab, under Options. It worked!! And I just wanted to say "thanks!" Greg

I'm not agreeing or disagreeing...I'm just curious as to why you say that.
