sorry for the length, but here goes
bought a laptop , really liked windows 7 that I have on desk top so went with 7 using both computers, so I moved all programs & stuff from desk top to lap top, including office xp, which has word, excel etc & works perfectly on desk top , but when I transfer excel files from desk top to lap top, excel can't open them ? also notice that on desktop, files have the little green excell symbol, but when loaded on lap top, it dis-appears
the goofy part is, when I transferred about a dozen files from desk to lap, 2 of the files looked the same ( green icon ) the other 10 lost the icon & can't be opened even when I click " open with " , I can't get the excel program to even show up on the list if I click on one of the files that has the green icon, it automatically opens with excel hope that's not too confusing
also, both computers have the same copy of office xp ( legal ) and ran micro soft up-dates , service packs etc
getting by by installing some excel editor free program I found, but the excel issue is drving me nuts
any suggestion would be welcome thanks
