workgroup information file does not exist

In SQL Server 2000 I have created a linked server. It was to link me
with an Excel file.
I received a message:

[OLE/DB provider returned message: You can't execute the application.
Workgroup information file does not exist or was opened in exclusive
mode by another user.]

I know about system.mdw, but it is linked with Access. And what about
Excel.

May anyone help me?.
