In Microsoft Outlook 97, when you double-click a Microsoft Excel 97 freedoc (an Office document posted directly to a folder rather than an attachment to a message) you may get one of the following error messages:
This behavior occurs when Excel is not opened before double-clicking the freedoc, or the following Add-Ins are loaded in Excel:
- ODBC Add-In
Unload the two Excel Add-Ins, or open Excel before double-clicking the Excel freedoc.
Unloading the Excel Add-ins
- On the Excel Tools menu click, Add-Ins.
- Click to deselect AutoSave and ODBC Add-In, then click OK.
- Quit Excel.
If you prefer to leave the Excel Add-Ins turned on, you can start and minimize Excel before double-clicking the Excel freedoc.
Result: When you double-click the Excel freedoc, you will not receive the error message.
