Can't open any excel files after installing Snow Leopard

I can't open any excel files after installing Snow Leopard. Is anyone else having this problem?
I have a standard iWork '08 install. Has anyone experienced? And better yet, know of a fix?

Welcome to Apple Discussions
Most users who have had a problem opening Office files with the iWork apps after upgrading to Snow Leopard have the problem fixed by updating to the latest versions. For iWork '08 that is Pages 3.0.3 & Numbers 1.0.3. For iWork '09 it's Pages 4.0.2 & Numbers 2.0.2. I don't use Keynote, but it should also be updated. If you're not running the latest versions & Software Update says your software is up to date, make sure the applications are where the installer initially put them. The updaters are very picky. If the location is not where the updater is programmed to look or if the folder doesn't have the name the updater looks for, it will not work. The applications cannot be renamed or moved. They must be in the iWork '08 or iWork '09 folder in Applications. That iWork folder must be named iWork '08 or iWork '09. If it doesn't have the '08 or '09 Software Update won't find them & the updaters won't work.

  • Can't open any Excel files.

    When I double click on an Excel icon to open a spreadsheet, Excel open to a blank page.
    Once I have Excel open, I can search for the file from within the programme and it opens fine. If I then do a "save as", and try to re-open the file from the desktop location, it still will not open.
    This has happened since installing Office 365
    What do I do now??

    Hi ErickWB,
    I agree with Michiel’s suggestion, and we can also try the methods below.
    1. Try uncheck the Ignore Other Applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE).
    Click File > Options > Advanced > General Section > Tick the option "Ignore other application that use Dynamic Data Exchange"
    2. Choose Run and enter Excel.exe /regserver
    This will cause Excel to start up, re-register all of its registry keys, then quit. Now, try opening your Excel files.

  • Downloaded latest version of Firefox and now can't open any Excel files

    The problem started right after I downloaded the latest version of Firefox (4?). When I try to open my Excel files I get a Windows error message and then it says that Excel can not find the file.

    A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process.

  • Preview can't open Adobe DNG files converted in snow leopard

    I have been unable under Snow Leopard 10.6 to use either 5.4 or 5.5 adobe dng converter to convert Leica RWL files to DNG files that are readable by Preview or by Aperture. Adobe CS4 can read these DNG files, but then it can read the RWL raw files as well.
    However, on my other mac using Leopard 10.5, the converted DNG files ARE readable by Preview and Aperture. Any thoughts or help?

    The DNG converter is not a plug-in.  You need the Camera Raw update.  That may be your point of confusion.

  • I cannot open any reader files after installing reader XI

    why can't I open files.  I can't even open the program, but it won't let me uninstall saying I have files open.

    What is your operating system?  What is your Reader XI version?  What exactly means "cannot"?

  • I can't open any excel file it say's not enough memory everything else works. Thanks

    I have no clue on what is going on with my computer can anyone help?

    How many programs do you have open. Usually your machine will use the disk as scratch memory, but your program may be needing internal memory and it may not be able to address it. Close some programs backwards as to how you opened them and see if you can free some memory. If you still have a problem, I would close everything and restart opening that program first. Jerry

  • "Inkjet 4 Quit Unexpectedly" error message after installing Snow Leopard, C410 printer

    Can't get printer to print after installing Snow Leopard.  C410 Photosmart Premium All in One Printer.  Keeps saying "Inkjet 4 Quit Unexpectedly".  Wireless test says everything is fine.

    If you are using Snow Leopard or Lion and have HP software for pre-Snow Leopard (either from a CD not marked as compatible with 10.6 or you recently upgraded to Snow Leopard or Lion and had the HP software on your Mac before you upgraded - even if you did a standard uninstall of the old software or installed new software over the top of it) you must uninstall the software using the 'scrubber' option:
    Go to Applications/Hewlett Packard/ click on HP Uninstaller
    Click on Continue
    Highlight your device on the left pane
    Press and hold Control + Alt + Cmd keys on the keyboard simultaneously while you click on Uninstall <<<< This IS the Scrubber Option, there is no button labeled "Scrubber"
    There will be a pop up that asks if you are sure you want to uninstall ALL hp software. (At this point, if you continue, any HP printers you have installed will need to be reinstalled)
    Click Continue and let it finish
    Restart your Mac
    Download and install this:
    Now reset the printing system:
    - Sys Prefs, Print & Fax
    - Right (control) click in the rectangle listing your printers and select Reset Printing System.
    WARNING - this will delete ALL of your printers!
    Finally, get the latest software for your printer from the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of this page.

  • Hello, I have transferred my Acrobat XI Pro from old MAC to the new one. After the transfer can not open any PDF file. Any idea how to solve this?

    Hello, I have transferred my Acrobat XI Pro from old MAC to the new one. After the transfer can not open any PDF file. Any idea how to solve this?

    Hey ilyaz20360341,
    Could you please specify how exactly did you transfer Acrobat from one MAC to other.
    You might need to deactivate the software from your old machine and then activate it on the new one with the same serial number (for Acrobat license) or Adobe credentials (for Acrobat subscription).
    If you have done the same way, then let me know if you are able to open Acrobat itself.
    Do you get any specific error message while opening a PDF?
    Hope to get your response.

  • Can't open any *.exe files

    When I try to open .exe files I get an error message that says "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel." I've gone to control panel > tools > folder options > file types and tried to set "exe" to "application," but that doesn't seem to work. Funny enough, I am able to open other types of programs like pictures, videos and PDF files, and if I open an html file directly I can open Firefox, but I can't open firefox.exe directly. I would like to run an antivirus or malware-check program but, of course, I can't open any .exe files.
    I am running Windows XP SP3 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61.

    See if you are able to download DDS and save it to your desktop.
    Disable any script blocking protection
    Double click dds.scr to run the tool.
    When done, DDS.txt will open.
    Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan.
    Save both reports to your desktop.
    Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet. Some instructions for disabling AV are HERE.
    Please include the contents of the following logs by copying and pasting the text of each into your next reply:
    * NOTE: You may need to use another computer to download DDS to a CD or USB flash drive and transfer it to the Desktop of the computer with the problem.
    Based on what shows up in those logs I will post additional advice.

    Indicas que no puedes abrir ningun archivo de video, se supone que has probado varios formatos, mp4, mov,..
    Has actualizado el OSX a 10.9 ?, funcionaba antes? La versión de Photoshop es la CC, no la CC 2014?
    En el menú de Ayuda>Actualizaciones, cual es el resultado, dice que esta al día?
    Tienes abiertas otras aplicaciones?
    Prueba a cerrar todo, espera media minuto y abre Photoshop a ver que ocurre.

  • Just upgraded to Lion, can't open any pdf file downloaded from internet that was fine with Leopard. How can I overcome this obstacle ?

    Just upgraded to Lion, can't open any pdf file downloaded from the internet that was fine with Leopard before. I just got a black screen when I clicked on a pdf icon on a given internet site, and same happened with several sites that I visited. How can I overcome this obstacle ?

    Try two things with Safari not running:
    1) Launch Adobe Reader, open its preferences, select the Internet category, and check the values under "Display PDF in browser using".  If it's checked, try unchecking it.
    2) Look in /Library/Internet Plug-Ins (at the top-level of your boot volume) for something names AdobePDFViewer.plugin.  If you see such a file, try moving it to a folder named "Disabled Plug-Ins" (if such a folder exists) or onto the Desktop.
    Then see how things work.

  • Opening Photo Files in Photo Shop CS3 after installing Snow Leopard.

    After installing Snow Leopard I could only open photo files in a Preview mode. I called Adobe and Apple and could not get a solution. So I called my local Mac tech person where I got the answer to my problem. What to do: Right click on an image file icon.(Do not open image.) Then go to: Get info. In the dropdown menu, Open with: Select Adobe Photoshop or whatever app you desire. Then click change all. You have to do this just one time for each extention such as jpg, tif, etc. Trust this helps.

    Hello sean:
    I am not an expert in iPhoto, but people who post here are:
    To try to address the browser problem, reset Safari and see if that helps. Also, try an alternate browser (I use Firefox that way) to see if the problem is system-wide. Also, there is a Safari forum here:

    If you upgraded to Lion or Mountain Lion, and did not upgrade to Office 2008 or later, that may be part of the problem.  Try LibreOffice, OpenOffice, NeoOffice, Google Docs, or Zoho Docs.  See my FAQ* for link:
