Unable to Open Excel documents directly from within SharePoint 2007 – Resolution

Regarding issues experienced with opening Excel within Sharepoint –
 
Looking at the settings on the problem PC’s it seems the “XLSX” extension – file open reference was pointing to moc.exe rather than excel.exe. For some reason this seems to affect opening 2002 / 97 documents as well.
 
This can be remedied by performing the following action –
 
Go to my computer – Tools (menu)– Folder Options
 
Click the File Types (Tab)
 
Find the file type XLSX
 
Click Advanced then open in the list, hit the edit button
 
Check “application used to perform action” for references to moc.exe (Microsoft Open XML Converter), if so delete the contents and insert the following –
“”C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\EXCEL.EXE”” /e
 
Click ok, ok and close.
