    Unable to Open .pdf Files in Excel

    Vampy99 Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I have an Excel spreadsheet & within it there are several .pdf files inserted as objects.

       

      I can open some of the files but not others.

       

      When I click on the files that I can open, in the formula bar at the top of Excel it says =EMBED("Acrobat Document","")

       

      On the files I can't open it says =EMBED("Outlook.FileAttach","")

       

      It is weird because some people can open these objects & others can't.

       

      The error message I'm getting when trying to open these files is "Cannot start the source application for this object".

       

      I have opened Adobe Reader (v 10) & gone to Edit > Preferences > General > Unticked enable protected mode at startup, but still no joy.

       

      I could really do with some help with this now as I've been looking for a fix all day & there is nothing that I've tried that has worked..

       

      Thanks in advance.
