Excel spreadsheet opens in blank RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a strange issue recently. When double click on an  excel spreadsheet, it opens the Excel program but nothing displays only a blank page. When opening the excel via right-click -> open, it opens correctly. I can also open the excel spreadsheet via the opened excel program and click file -> open. Is this controled by a setting in excel or is this caused by a recent update? By de way, I use Excel 2013. This issue doesn't happen with Excel 2010.

    Thanks,

    Zhtt

  • Hi Zhtt,

    Do you get this problem in Word or PowerPoint programs?

    Normally this problem is related to Excel doesn't share DDE information with other applications.

    I suggest you go to File- Options- Advanced- uncheck "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)" option.

    Please try this method first, and let me know the result.

    Any help please let me know, I'm glad to help you.
