Isses opening Excel documents within SharePoint 2007

Regarding issues experienced with opening Excel within Sharepoint –
Looking at the settings on the problem PC’s, Peter Lloyds and Jo Cartwright’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, if so delete the contents and insert the following –
“”C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\EXCEL.EXE”” /e
Click ok, ok and close.
