My computer did an automatic update today :thumbsup: - and now I can't open Microsoft Excel (where I just happen to have all my business accounts!!!)

I also get a message about having to reinstall msi.dll - don't know if it is the reason I can't use Excel.

Can anyone help???

try using the run command and type
excel.exe /firstrun
and see if that will fire up OK.

If the fix that Projectfocus suggests doesn't work then do a repair on the MS Office installation using the Add/Remove option on Control Panel. Select the Change button, then repair.
