Go to "FILE", "Save As" and then change "Save As type to XLS" That should hold that setting afterwards from now on.

    If it's the extension xls and it opens with notepad or another program then you need to right-click the file and choose properties. Then choose "open with", find the excel program and then make sure you check the box at the bottom that says to do this everytime.

Sounds like the ext that is setup on your PC for XLS. is set to TXT. To fix just open My Documents
Choose tools from the menu - folder options - file types - scroll to XLS and see what its listed as. if TXT click the change button and choose Microsoft Excel. If its not in the list click the browse buttong and look in your programs file folder on your C drive for Microsoft Office and choose the folder Office 11 or 12 ( depends on verions installed on PC) and choose Excel.exe from there
Then ok.

If XLS is not under File Types click the new button - enter in XLS and ok then browse to the Excel.exe icon in your MS Office Folder and click ok.

From then on all your files will open in Excel with the ext. Txt

    Sorry the last like should have read. "From then on all your files with the XLS ext will open with Excel"

    All your .txt files will still open with word pad

Gudpm po im asking about how to open my open offices file again..last feb 15 i open my company pc the file has corrupted... tnx.....


If your company was using MS Office 2003 then you're using MS Office 2007. Make sure you're saving the file in a compatible format. For example, if you've create a report on excel file using MS Excel 2007 then you should save the file in .xls (compatible format) instead of .xlsx (2007 format. In that case you can open your file on both versions. Also when you're saving other office files make sure it's in compatible format.

In my PC Office 2003 is installed. Now sometimes I received Word & Excell 2007 files which is not opening in my PC. Can you tell me without installing Office 2007 how can I convert those docx and xlsx...


You don't have to convert the .docX or .xlsX to view in MS Office 2003, just install the "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats" and you should be able to open files, created or saved as the MS Office 2007 format.

If you need to edit the files you can too, but you will saved it in the MS Office 2003 formats.

Hope it helps.
