    A lot of people getting the error"There was a problem sending the command to the program" while opening excel 2003. This normally occurs because Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) is enabled which is ignoring the excel operation . If you have a newer Microsoft version(2013) and you are attempting to open a excel file that is 2003 or older you will be prompted with this error"There was a problem sending the command to the program "
