Help with Excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was doing my assessment on Excel 2007 and now when I try to open the file, it can't open as it has been saved as a shortcut. Is there a way I can change back to a document or excel file? Please help

  • Hi,

    Since you said it is saved as a shortcut. I suggest that you right click it and select Properties. Then check the Target. Go to the target directory, then open it. Or you could use Open Recent feature in Excel 2007.

    Hope that helps
