I'm trying to open a .xlsm file in Excel 2010 when I receive the error:
"There was a problem sending the command to the program"
Once Excel is open, I am able to open the file, but if Excel is closed, it spits out the error (Operating system: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Hardware: Dell Latitude E6540).
"Solutions" that I have tried to implement but don't fix the problem.
- Uncheck the "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE).
- Repair Office 2010.
- Uninstall and reinstall Office 2010
- Saving to the computer and opening them locally instead of on the network.
This problem occurs with all .xlsm files and all of the files have macros in them.
Other users on other systems have no errors opening the same files.
Any help and/or comment is welcome and appreciated!
