Error message in Microsoft Excel

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 8 (32-bit)

When I open an Excel  file on my desktop I get the message that says "unable to read this command" or something like that. I have excel spreadsheets up on my desktop, and when I double click on one of the icons I normally get this message. It is frustrating because I am forced go to File, Open, and click on the title of the icon that I want to open. I have copied these spreadsheets from my PC which has Microsoft Office 2003, but since I have copied only the data I would not think that would make any difference. Please help. Thank you.

Hi,

 

Do you have Excel on your machine ? Which version is it ? Please download Office files viewer and install on your machine:
