Excel file problem


Two possibilities:
  1. You accidentally save it as an HTM or HTML file. It will still open in Excel if so. Open the file in Excel and do a Save As back to an XLS (Excel 97-2003 version file) or XLSX (Excel 2007 - 2013 version file).
  2. You associated XLS or XLSX files to be opened with CometBird. If so, right click on the file and choose "Open With," then go to the bottom of the choices and left-click on "Choose default program..." Then choose Excel and you should be all set. Windows will reassociate all your files to automatically open with Excel instead of CometBird.

How to open Book1.xls file.?


To open an Excel spreadsheet, you need a program that understands the .xls format. You can get the free Excel Viewer from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10 . This is the latest version and will work with computers running Windows XP through Win7. There is a Mac OSX version available but I'm not sure of the URL. If you have an older OS, you can try searching for an older version of the Viewer.

Another option is to install any office suite that includes a spreadsheet program or just the spreadsheet program. Microsoft sells Office in several versions and you can buy Excel separately. There are several other spreadsheet and office suite software options that will also read Excel files. Open Office and LibreOffice are both free office suites which can read any Excel file. (www.openoffice.org and www.libreoffice.org ) Open Office and LibreOffice have versions that work under almost any OS.

I hope this helps.

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
