I can't open an excel file with my laptop


Hi simple,
I see that you are having issue opening an excel file with your Laptop what error do you get and what version of Office are you using?
If the Excel file that you are trying to open was save using a 2007 version or 2010 version and was not save as 2003 readable file then that will really be a problem, it is either you get the latest version of Office or you can go back from where you got the file and save it in a format that will be compatible to a lower version of Office.
When saving you just click on File then click Save as it will give you the options on how you want the file to be saved as, you just selct the format Excel 97-2003 Workbook, this should make it work with the latest version of excel and as well as the oldest versions of excel.

I hope that this help.
Have a nice day,
mvincentc

When I want to open a file in Word, Excel or Powerpoint in compatibility mode, I have to wait ages before it reacts.


Try this it may just do the trick.
Open the document in Word 2007. Then click the Office button and
choose Convert. When that finishes, the document won't be in
compatibility mode any more. Then you can save it as a .docx (Word
2007 format) file.
hope this helps

I have Microsoft Office 2007 which I purchased from Dell and installed late last year or earlier this year, however, the Excel keeps getting lost and I cannot open documents which I have done or received...


Use http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/ to find the serial number. As for the corrupt Excel program, you may need to determine what exactly is the problem there.

Go to Start, All Programs, Microsoft Office and see if Excel is listed. If it is, then click on it to launch it. Does it open? If so, then go to where your excel spreadsheets are saved to (e.g. My Documents) then right click an Excel spreadsheet & click on "Open With". Select Choose Program. Select the Microsoft Excel. If Excel is not listed, click the browse button and browse to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12. Click the Always use the selected program to open this type of file checkbox. Click OK

I currently have microsoft office professional 2007 trial version which has expired. If I don't want to order it and just go back to my 2003 version can I just cancel the 2007 version? Will it just convert...


If you still have the installation CD for Microsoft Office 2003 and the key that goes with it, you can un-install the Trial version of Office 2007 and install Office 2003. Files saved Office 2007 format are not redable with Office 2003.

To preserve your files (the ones made with Office 2007) you must go through the following procedure:
  1. Open each file with the application that created it (Word, Excel, Powepoint, or what have you)
  2. If it its a Word 2007 file save it in Word2003 format
  3. If it is an Excel 2007 file save it in the Excel 2003 format.
  4. Etc.
This is only necessary if you intend to modify them at some later time.
If you only want to read (not modify) them you can still do that because Microsoft offers a free Word viewers.

Other free software you can use to open files created with Office 2007 is OpenOffice.org 3. You might lose some formatting but the files will be accessible to you.

When trying to open an Excel attachment thru Outlook 07, I get this error message: The system cannot find the specified file


Two possible issues: The file extension may be missing from the file and Excel has issues opening a file directly from the e-mail attachment.

It is always a best practice to download the attachment before trying to open it.

Save the file to your comptuer and verify the file has a 3 digit extension on the end. .XLS an Excel 2003 and lower extension - .XLSX is Excel 2007 extension.

Opening an attachment from an e-mail places the file in a TEMP directory on the hard drive and Excel may have issues saving your changes because of this.

Save the attachment and then open it with Excel. That way, the changes you make will be saved, you will know where the file is and you will not lose your work.
