Excel web access an error has occurred share Point 2007


One of our users gets the following issue when accessing a given.xlsx file in a document repository.  The enduser can access other files in the same repository fine. We're not using Excel Calculation Services. The enduser is using Office 2010 (x86).  Our SharePoint farm is 2007. Using share point if the document originator copies the file from one location to another, the enduser is able to access it.  It's just weird. Have any idea?

Hi Baird,
The error is because Excel Calculation services are not activated on the server.
There are multiple solution to the error:
Solution 1:
1) In the 'SharePoint Central Administration' tab, Click 'Operations' > 'Services On Server' > 'Excel Calculation Services'
2) Click 'Start the Service'
3) click 'OK'
Solution 2:
1) Set the Document library as 'Open in Client Application'
2) Start 'Excel Calculation Services' on server and add the created document library to it
