Cannot open excel documents RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am currently working in Sharepoint and when I try to open an Excel document in Excel, nothing happens.  I can open the document online and can download it, but cannot open it in the application.  I have no problem opening a Word document using the Word application.  Can you tell me how to fix this?

    Thanks!

    Jennifer

  • Thank you for the reply, but I don't get an error message.  I believe the problem happened the first time Word was opened.  There was a message regarding a launcher and either open in Word or do nothing.  Nothing was selected and now the document will not open in Word only in Word Online.  I went to Site Settings and activated the option "open documents in client applications by default" in the site collection features.  The word document still does not open.

    Thanks
