There was a problem sending the command to the program EXCEL 2007

Thanks to Captain Jack S... this worked for me: Make sure the application is not running under any kind of compatibility mode. Go to the directory where Excel is installed Right Click on it go to Properties and go to Compatibility Tab make sure Compatibility mode is unchecked.
