Excel - File opens, worksheet does not display

Asked By parker.moran on 08-May-08 09:10 PM
In Office 2007, I can open files (either .xls or .xlsx) but the
worksheets and data do not appear.  If I maximize or restore the
screen, or if I hit the Office button, the data will show up.  It
appears at first as if only the shell of the program is open until
changing the screen size or clicking the Office button, which reveals
the workbook.

If Excel is opened first, a blank workbook does appear normally.  If
opening a file from within Excel, everything is fine.  It is just when
double-clicking on a file from a saved location or opening directly
from an email message that this happens.  This happens with all files,
even new ones after I create them and close Excel.

Any ideas...

Turns out the cause was the add-in for a Brother label printer,
specifically a P-Touch QL-550.  Even though Excel did not show this as
a plug-in under Options | Add-ins, it did pop in under the Add-Ins tab
on the ribbon.  Reinstalling the label maker software without the add-
ins allowed Excel to work correctly.

Thanks for the reply

Next time you think a add-in is the problem you can start Excel
in Safe mode.

Open Excel with the Ctrl key down and say Yes in the dialog that
popup to start excel in Safe mode.

No add-ins or workbooks in xlstart will be loaded then
