Problem Executing an Excel file
« on: April 11, 2008, 10:44:50 AM »
I'm using FARR on my work computer and it's a GREAT timesaver  :Thmbsup:  . I am, however, having a problem with one program. I execute FARR and it always comes up #1 on the history list (I have deleted it from the list, but after 1 more search, it's back in the # 1 position. The file, "My Goals -2008.xls" will not execute by either hitting the enter key or the #1 on the keypad. I regularly execute numerous other Excel and Word files without issue, it is just this one (Note: I have numerous other files with the "- 2008" in the title, as well). To date I have had no problem bringing up .lnk files, .xls files, .doc files, etc.

Is there maybe a space at the beginning or end of the filename?

Yep....that was the problem. The file was named "My Goals - 2008[space].xls". I didn't see the space in there, but once I found it and removed it, the file executes.

Thanks Mouser!!!! Love this program - I have already shown it to about 5 other people.
