try mappiing the shared drive to your comoputer:
open "my computer" click tools on the menu button, then choose "map a network drive" choose an unused drive letter, type "\\JULIE\Shared Documents\" (without the quotes) in the folder box, click the "reconnect at logon" box and press finish....it's probably going to ask for a username and password put julie\(a user that exists on julie that has access to the folder0 as the user...then that user's password
now that folder will show up in your my computer list as if it were a local hard drive....try to open an excell doc now

open up excell (or any office program) click on help, then choose "detect and repair" put a check in both checkboxes and press ok....it will tell you that an office program is open...so close excell and press ok....this will probably take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to run
once it's done try again

they removed the detect and repair option
Help: Detect and Repair…
Description: The Detect and Repair… option on the Help menu is no longer available in the 2007 Office release, and has been replaced by Repair.
Reason for change:Repair is now more robust and integrated.
Migration path: Users can use Repair through the Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs for Office products, or Customer Watson Setup Diagnostics.
try the first method....er....first
How to repair problems in installed 2007 Office programs and features
You can use either of the following methods to detect and to repair problems that are associated with installed Microsoft Office programs and features, such as registry settings and missing installation files. You cannot use these methods to repair personal files, such as worksheets or templates.
Method 1: Run Office Diagnostics from a 2007 Office program
1. Start the Office Diagnostics tool. To do this, use either of the following methods:• For a menu-based 2007 Office program, click Office Diagnostics on the Help menu.
• For a ribbon-based 2007 Office program, follow these steps:a. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Program Options.
Note In this option, Program represents the name of the program.
b. In the Navigation Pane, click Resources.
c. Click Diagnose.
2. Click Continue.
3. Click Start Diagnostics.
If the Office Diagnostics tool identifies a problem, it tries to fix the problem.
4. When the Office Diagnostics tool finishes, click Close.
Method 2: Run the Detect and Repair tool from Add or Remove Programs
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
3. Click Microsoft Office Edition 2007, and then click Change.
Note In this option, Edition represents the Microsoft Office edition that is installed on the computer.
4. Click Repair, and then click Continue.

Tools then Options then General then uncheck the box that says "Ignore other applications" (or possibly check it if it's already unchecked)
