Make sure the email message is closed. Start Excel. From the toolbar, select Tools -> Options. Click the General tab. Make sure that "Ignore other applications" is unchecked. Hope that helps.

It's a mapping issue I think. Map to the drive where the file is stored and it will open. Happens to me sometimes, too.

If you are still tackling this problem, perhaps you should consider calling your local super-hero.
