Does this happen with ALL Excel files, or just with some? What happens if you open a new (empty) workbook and save it?

Try 'Repair' from Setup from the CD, and/or redownload SR-2.
Try uninstall/reinstall + revisit to officeupdate as a last resort.

Hope this helps.

Run the control panel add/remove software and remove Office. It will offer to repair the office and you can slip the CD in at the right step.

No office CD? ->
