Get this error for all xlf documents.

"Could not connect to Microsoft Excel. To prevent further data corruption, the program must close."

try these,

kill excel process, not working,

run as admin, not working,

change name, unzip, run excel, not working.

not only for my own xlf, but also default template. any attempts to connect to Excel will cause this exception.

was worked well five month ago. Please help.

OS: Win 7 64bit

Office: 2010 32bit

DD: Ver: 6.0.0.0 Build, 14.0.2.364.

Years of work lost, Please help

thanks Guys,

Sarah is right. I changed some setting in Excel to edit 2003 xls file. These setting caused the exception. Don't know which one, but after restore, everything is fine.

again, appreciate a lot.
