MS Office 2007 Excel files not opening

Tags:
Microsoft Excel
Office 2007
I have MS Office 2007, Windows 7. When I double click on an XLS file, Excel opens up but it is just a empty Excel program. It is similar to opening up Excel and then just closing the book1 that opens up automatically. Just a grey background. Also I can't open up XLS files by doing File > Open or dragging XLS files into an already opened Excel. And double clicking an XLS does not work. I tried doing a detect and repair on excel but that did not seem to fix anything. Any ideas? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

goto “C:\Users\%user_name%\AppData\Local\Microsoft” and delete office folder (take backup before doing the same)

    "I tried doing a detect and repair on excel" which repair method is there! Is it done by office built-in repair or external/ 3rd party repairing tool. If possible, try the same file with another pc/laptop with office 2007 installed and see if the same will happen again.

    Are you sure the file contains data? What is the current size of the file? Is this an .XLSX file? If you tried Subhendu suggestions and still are having issues, report back.
