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

Excel workbook error


I came across this issue today. An update to the Office Compatibility Pack that was still on a computer caused the default PROGRAM for .docx and .xlsx files to be the Microsoft Open XML Converter program and make the "Default Programs" in Control Panel think that Excel and Word were actually the Microsoft Open XML Converter scholarship essay writing assistance program as well.UNINSTALLING the Office Compatibility Pack in Programs and Features and then a simple reboot fixed the issue.
Also:
1: Try to repair it manually when MS Excel does not automatically STARTS File recovery mode.
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click OPEN.
Now select the corrupted workbook that you want to open.
Click the arrow NEXT to the Open button, and then click Open and Repair.
Choose either Repair (to recover as much of the FILE data) or Extract data (to extract values and formula when repair process is not successful).
2: Open with Open Office: Try to open your Excel file in Open Office. It is an open-source Office suite that is able to open & SAVE Microsoft Excel files.
3: Save in HTML Format: Open your Excel file and save it in HTML format. By saving the workbook in HTML format, you may be able to filter out the corrupted elements.
4: Save in SYLK Format: Open your Excel file and save it in SYLK format. By saving the workbook in SYLK format, you may be able to filter out the corrupted elements.
5: Try 3rd party software like Excel Repair Toolbox

Excel 2003 worksheet slow in 2007


Hi Lee, I have recently experienced the same thing. When Excel 2007 or later opens an Excel 97-2003 .xls file, there are major issues of speed. The file is opened in compatibility mode. The best thing to do would be to open the file, then save as (keep the same name if you like) an Excel 2007 .xlsx document (or .xlsm document if there are macros). Close the file, then reopen it, and the compatibility mode issue will be gone. You can now use the newly saved file as a normal Excel 2007 file. Hope this helped.

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.

Hi.

OPTION 1
Right click your excel file, select the RENAME option.
Type any name and at the end put .xls example... nunex will be nunex.xls
Save it and try to open again.

If that dosnt work, go to microsoft Office, Excell. Open and select the files.

OPTION 2
For one reason you see the logo has changed from excel to a strange logo, then you must right click the file, Properties, then where it says Opens with you select CHANGE. -- > Browse -- > and select Microsoft Excel.
SAVE and Exit.

It will be solved.

Office 2003 Standard edition compatible w/ Small Business edition


Where were you saving the old Excel files to: c:\my documents for example. Is your new Excel saving or retrieving documents from the same location? If not, it will look like the old files are gone, when Excel is simply looking in the wrong place.

An installation won't wipe out data files--they're in two different locations. If you do a global wildcard search (*.xls) you will probably find them.
