I converted to Lion on day one.  I was able to use Microsoft Office 2008 without problem for days, then, just today, every time I go to open an excel file it opens, closes, then gives me the option of sending error reports to Microsoft.  Word opens fine. The program is totally up to date (just did the 12.3 update).  I repaired disk permissions, restarted the computer twice.  Still, the same things happen.  Here is the message I get for the Microsoft Excell Error Report:



Error Signature:


Date/Time: 2011-07-25 00:43:45 +0000

Application Name: Microsoft Excel

Application Bundle ID:

Application Signature: XCEL

Application Version:

Crashed Module Name: unknown

Crashed Module Version: unknown

Crashed Module Offset: unknown

Blame Module Name: unknown

Blame Module Version: unknown

Blame Module Offset: unknown

Application LCID: 1033

Extra app info: Reg=en Loc=0x0409

Crashed thread: 0



The other thing that happens is that whether on Word or Excel when I click on a file to open it, it keeps trying to open all the recent files from that program intead of *just the ONE* that I want it to open.  I also notice on Safari that when I reopen the program it opens ALL the websites I recently visited even though I don't have that checked as a preference...  What gives??????????


Any suggestions.  I am freakingout here, really need to get into these documents.

I tried repairing permissions early on and just did it again, also rebooted computer after each of those, still the same problem...  This is a tough one...
