    Ok, so I run a business and I've been able to open my invoice templates up until a couple days ago. For some reason when I try to open them now, I get a Converting: Metafile progress bar that pops up and it keeps looping like its converting something, and there is something about the graphic filter too that comes up but the document never actually opens.

    I can open Excel and start a new document and such but when I try and open this particular template it does this. Can someone please help me because I need to print out some invoices for my customers.

    If it's truly a template, as you call it, you've used it to create files. Thus, the template has been around awhile in it's present form. So, grab a backup copy and replace the stubborn one.

    Thank you for the response. I have done this and it hasn't fixed it. I've tried searching for similar problems with people and there are some with the same issue. I just can't find a fix for it.
