    Whenever trying to save an excel 2010 spreadsheet, getting an error, "Microsoft Excel is waiting for another application to complete an OLE action." I ticked the box in the advanced options to ignore other applications that use DDE, but then I started getting a new error, "There is a problem sending the command to the program" and my file won't open.

    I'm stuck in a loop and google is failing me.

    please halp!

    Can you open excel with a blank file? If so, then uncheck the DDE option. If not, try this fixit.
