 BEING UNABLE TO OPEN XLS FILES SAVED IN A FOLDER

I am unable to open Excel files  saved within a folder,
error message reads "cannot find the file ....xls (or one
of its components). Make sure that the path and filename
are correct and that all available libraries are
available."

Can you offer any clues as to how to recify this so that I
can open such files?

Thanks

Are you sure the file is actually still in that folder?

Are you sure the folder is actually still there, and still visible? i.e. -
is the network still working?

Also, try opening it different ways, like double-clicking the file name
instead of doing File | Open... or open Excel and then drag the file from
Explorer to Excel.

If none of that helps, perhaps more information from you would enable a
better diagnosis, like Excel version, OS version, Network type and version,
exact stesp you take to create the problem, etc...
