My Microsoft Excel just died on me! Please help!

Postby krunchyfrogg » Sat Mar 15, 2008 11:24 am

I don't know what went wrong!

I really need it in the next few hours too... please help!

I have (had) Office 2003 installed on my computer. Word still works just fine, but I can't get Excel to open. I have a huge, very competitive fantasy baseball draft starting in just under 4 hours, and had all my players out in tiers and it was really sweet. But now I can't open it!

When I attempt to open Excel, I get error messages, and my computer attempts to install excel. I have no idea where my discs are (I bought that version of Word when it was fairly new... in 2004 IIRC).

Is Open Office a good enough quick fix (just to get me through the draft)?

Well, it better be unless somebody can point me to a place where I can get Excel 2003 for free, and fast!

Please help if you can.

Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

Open Office should work fine.

Bury me a Royal.

Google docs is another quick fix that won't require a lengthy download/install.
