Microsoft Excel Workbook May Not Activate from Object Packager


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c, 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c


If you insert a Microsoft Excel 4.0 workbook into a Word for Windows document using the Windows Object Packager, Microsoft Excel may open and then close if you attempt to activate the workbook. A Microsoft Excel 4.0 workbook file cannot be inserted, linked, or embedded directly into a Word document.


Switch to File Manager, choose Associate from the File menu, and associate XLW files with EXCEL.EXE.


This problem was corrected in Excel version 5.0 for Windows.
