    It cannot be excluded that the file window is hidden. Go to View tab and find Unhide button. Press it.

    After "opening" the file, go to the VBA editor (LeftAlt+F11) and see if it appears in the list of open projects. If it is not there, it is likely that the file has not been opened. In this case, it could be blocked by Excel.
    Unfortunately, I don't remember now where, but somewhere in Excel is a place where you can see a list of blocked files.

    I tried to do as you said, VBA Editor is notthing, and list of blocked files - File block setting - trust center is only available in higher excel version, Where can I find it in office 2007?

    Unfortunately, MSO 2007 was a very short episode in my life. I no longer have access to it.


    But another thought occurred to me. Maybe the macro is written so that if a condition is not met, the file is not opened. Admittedly, it seems to me that you should see for a moment that the file has been opened. If you want to go this way, change the settings in Excel so that files are opened without running macros (or at least you must agree to run them; in this case, do not agree to run macros). Try to open the file again without running macros. If the workbook shows up, it may mean that you need to look for the solution in the code. If the workbook is still not visible, it will indicate that Excel has blocked it.


    I probably don't have more ideas.

    In that case the file can be opened with macros disabled (shift-Open).

    Yes, but remember that it works only from the Excel interface. It will not work if you double-click to open a file from the file manager.

    How did you open the workbook? From within Excel, or from elsewhere by double-clicking?
    Be as you wish to seem

    - Yes, I have tried everything but it still didn't work, my office has 15 computers and the files I need to open are located in the common server of the office.
    - The problem is: only one computer can open it normally (computer name: tbc-13), the other 14 computers cannot open files like the image I posted above.
    - All computers are using Windows 10, Office 2007, I am looking for the difference between the computer name: tbc-13 and the other 14 computers and I still haven't found it.
    - Do you have any suggestions for me about finding the difference between computer name: tbc-13 and the other 14 computers?
    Thanks you for reply

    You didn't answer the question and only provided 'information' you provided earlier.

    I answered and added information about the location of the files,
    I mean, I installed everything about office 2017 on my computer like computer name: tbc-13, but still can't open the files, I'm looking for a reason.
