  • User double clicks on an Excel spreadsheet located on his computer, opens fine, as expected.
  • User double clicks on an Excel spreadsheet located in a shared folder the following happens.
    • If user has a spreadsheet opened, it closes the open spreadsheet and then opens a blank spreadsheet.
    • If user doesn’t have a spreadsheet opened, it just opens a blank spreadsheet.
  • User is running 64bit Office 2013 on machine running Windows 7.


I was just looking through the logs files for the computer and I didn’t find anything out of the ordinary.
