Excel may have "Ignore other applications" selected. See THIS Microsoft Knowledgebase Article.

Try going to Excel Options; Advanced tab; and under the 'General' heading: uncheck the box that says: Ignore other Applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE).

In Microsoft Excel 97, on the Tools menu, click Options. Click the General tab. Clear the Ignore Other Applications checkbox, and click OK.
In Excel 2007, Click Office Button, Excel Options, Advanced.
Look for General.
Clear the Ignore Other Applications checkbox.
Now, as to why this was checked in the first place, ewan ko na!

Excel Corruption files


Without seeing the file, it is difficult to diagnose what is going on, but I will offer some ideas.

What version of Excel are you using? Are you using Excel 2003? Was the file you are trying to open created in Excel 2007 or Excel 2010. If so, it might be using the new format and therefore will not open in Excel 2003 and older.

It is possible the Excel file is data that was imported from a source in which Excel cannot import. Does the Excel spreadsheet contain any imported data?
Try to use: XLSX Viewer Tool here : http://www.xlsx.viewertool.com/
Those are the most likely causes of the corrupt data. Is every file you open in Excel corrupt, or just this one workbook? If it is just this one workbook, then, yes, it sounds like it is corrupted. If every file you open with Excel is corrupt, then your version of Excel could be corrupt, but that is unlikely.

How to recover Excel lost file


How to solve some troubles with excel files you may learn from- http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/microsoft/microsoft-aa/excel/481-%E2%80%8Bexcel-files-corrupted

How to Recover an Excel File for Free

1.Check the Recycle Bin--if you've accidentally deleted the file, it should still be there unless you've emptied the bin, and you can click on the file and recover it.

2.Use the Auto Recovery Pane when you open Excel. Review the document recovery pane. If Excel has managed to recover your file, it will show in a separate pane on the left-hand side. Identify your document in the pane, then click on it and choose "Open" to open the recovered file.

3.Try manually repairing the file. Click on "File" in Excel 2003 or the "Office" button in
Excel 2007, then select "Open" and click on the arrow next to the "Open" button. Click on
"Open and Repair" and choose from two options: click on "Repair" if you want to try to completely recover the file, or click on "Extract Data" if you previously tried Step 1 and it did not work.

4.Search for the file manually on your computer. When performing a system search (click "Start" and select "Search" in Windows XP and Windows 2000, or press the "Windows" button and "F" key in Windows 7 and Vista), make sure you choose "Advanced Search Options" and then check the "System and hidden files" check box. You may be able to find your missing or corrupted file using this search: double-click on the file name in the search results to open it.

If nothing can help you, look at Excel Repair Toolbox

As a solution, it costs money, but effective- http://www.excelrepairtoolbox.com/

Corrupt excel 2010 file


1 - Using "Open and repair"

Microsoft Excel has a built-in repair tool for corrupted files. To access it, go to File and Open. A menu will pop up in which you'll have to select the file you want to fix and then choose "Open and repair" from the dropdown menu. This will open a dialogue box in which you can pick between the repair option (which will recover as much information as possible) and the extract option (that will copy values and formulas). The two alternatives combined should work fine to save your work.

2 - Saving the file to a different format

If you can open the file but you can't modify it or save the changes, you should use this method. You'll have to save the file to a different format (such as SYLK or HTML) via the "Save as" menu. Once you've done this, you'll have to open the recently saved file and then save it once again (but this time, you'll have to choose the Excel Workbook as the format). By doing this, you'll be creating a fresh new file with all the data from the corrupted file.

3 - Opening the file in Microsoft Word

This option is only available for the people that have the Microsoft Excel converter installed on their PC (it can be downloaded from the Microsoft website). You simply have to open the corrupted Excel file with Word. However, you should know that this method only works for retrieving data (all the structures from the sheet will be gone, such as formulas and macros).

4 - Altering the Calculation option

If your file isn't opening at all you can try to adjust the calculation option. Simply open Excel in a blank workbook, go to the "Tools" menu and look for "Options". There you'll find the "Calculation" tab in which you'll have to look for the "Calculation" section and set it to "Manual". Click OK and then try to open the corrupted file once again.

5 - Linking the corrupted file

In this method, you'll have to link one cell of a blank worksheet to the corrupted workbook. Be sure to create the new worksheet in the same location as the corrupted file. Once you've done this go to the blank worksheet and enter the following in the A1 cell: <Filename>!A1. This will copy the data from the A1 cell of the corrupted file to the new sheet. In case it works, simply click "Edit" on the cell and select an area like the one covers the cell that contain data in the damaged file, and then click Paste. Then (and with the cells still selected) click Copy on the Edit menu.

How to open Book1.xls file.?


To open an Excel spreadsheet, you need a program that understands the .xls format. You can get the free Excel Viewer from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10 . This is the latest version and will work with computers running Windows XP through Win7. There is a Mac OSX version available but I'm not sure of the URL. If you have an older OS, you can try searching for an older version of the Viewer.

Another option is to install any office suite that includes a spreadsheet program or just the spreadsheet program. Microsoft sells Office in several versions and you can buy Excel separately. There are several other spreadsheet and office suite software options that will also read Excel files. Open Office and LibreOffice are both free office suites which can read any Excel file. (www.openoffice.org and www.libreoffice.org ) Open Office and LibreOffice have versions that work under almost any OS.

I hope this helps.
