Excel ......erratic ERROR

    Sorry, I got detained for a bit. The only thing I can think of is this:

    DISM to Fix Component Store Corruption:
    DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

    YES. I believe also is the way, after Scannow is the only way out. I shall do it later. Let you know.

    Thanks to all.

    Ok. That does take some time. Good luck.

    I am puzzled by the Registry Keys.

    HKCR Excel. Sheet8 > Shell > Open > Command that reads
    [default] "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\EXCEL.EXE" /dde
    [command] yh1BV5!!!!!!!!!MKKSkEXCELFiles>lVWA(TVkMAIS5Dh]3nVO /dde xb'BV5!!!!!!!!!MKKSkEXCELFiles>VijqBof(Y8'w!FId1gLQ /dde
    [ddeexec] [open("%1" /ou "%u")]

    HKCR Excel12 as above reads the same

    I quoted the readings as the homologous keys with Word (that is OK) have different terminals
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\WINWORD.EXE" /n "%1" /o "%u"

    May I ask if there are suggestions at this regard?

    I'll take it that DISM fixed nothing. Now you think it's a Registry problem. I would think these should have been set correctly upon Office install. Getting into Registry is beyond my capability.

    I will have to withdraw from helping you. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will come along. Good luck.

    Indeed the DISM was unsuccesful (2x).

    Many thanks as well.

    The only thing I can think of at this point is another reinstall. I know it to be a PITA time wise.

    Would and could anyone be of help to this member?

    I like to share with the Forum good news. My inconvenient is over. The solution was in this:

    In Excel 13 - in my installation at least - lacked the nomination of the TEMPLATES book and sheet in the STAT folder located in C:\Users\name\AppData\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART.
    It was enough to create the two files and identify its location in OPTIONS > Advanced > General at startup open all files in…………

    Thanks to all

    Glad to read that you got it fixed.

    So then to fix you added the proper files? If so, how?
