I have a problem with my excel files opening when the filenames have spaces.
The files will open, but I get an error for each word in the filename as it
opens.

I have tried to fix this issue but it just won't go away...

Here are the things I have tried
    1. Remove Excel.exe from the registry and then re-registered it
    2. Removed the .xlb file from the Excel directory in the user's folder
and let Excel rebuild the file.

The problem seems to be stemmed from a "%1" in the file type Open and New
action items. I have tried to remove the "%1", but it keeps coming back
automatically in this open statement from the file types list: "C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Office 2007\Office12\EXCEL.EXE" /e "%1"

Has anyone had this issue and had success with fixing it?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

TIA...
