Excel File Open Error

By lumberjack ·
Double clicking On an excel 97 (.XLS) file in explorer/my computer gives open error in win2000.

MS Excel initialises and the file is openned; however a dialogue box also opens stating the file is already open (ie it seems to try to open it twice)

If I start excel and open the file then its ok
The mouse as far as I can tell is not set to one click access.

To check if you are set to "Single-Click":

Goto START >> SETTINGS >> FOLDER OPTIONS >> and under the GENERAL TAB >> SETTINGS and look toward the bottom you will see where you can select single or double click options.
