Hi Suzanne and Welcome to JustAnswer. My Name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you today with your question. Could you please send me a screenshot of your Excel or Power Point icons (or the Office folder) ? Press Command(Apple) + Shift + 3. This should create a screenshot of your Mac into desktop. Then upload that screenshot into www.wikisend.com website and please give me the download links/share links that you get after uploading it
Goto Applications > Microsoft Office 2008 folder and can you open Excel or Power Point from there ?
Well, don't I feel stupid... Yes, Excel and Powerpoint opened when i went to Applications. Thanks.
