Question about Computers & Internet
I think you have the Microsoft Works package. The spreadsheet software does not read Excel files. If you need to just look at the spreadsheet, download and install the Excel viewer. The latest version is available at: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1cd6acf9-ce06-4e1c-8dcf-f33f669dbc3a&displaylang=en .
If you need to edit the file, download and install OpenOffice (may not work with Office 2010) if you want a free option. I suspect the Google on-line spreadsheet program may also work. Alternatively, you can buy either Office or one of the competitor's programs. (The prices will vary but I do not believe there are many that sell the spreadsheet software separately any more.)
I hope this helps.

is a spreadsheet file. By default, each workbook in Excel contains three pages
The term spreadsheet is often used to refer to a workbook, when in
actual fact, spreadsheet refers to the computer program, such as Excel.
strictly speaking, when you open the Excel spreadsheet program it loads an empty workbook file consisting of three blank worksheets for you to use.

a spreadsheet developed by Microsoft but is by no means the first spreadsheet.
The very first spreadsheet was developed
(or invented) by Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston called VisiCalc. VisiCalc was a
spreadsheet written to operate on the Apple II computer and was released
in 1979. The program was sold to Lotus who developed Lotus 123 from the
VisiCalc principle. Lotus 123 was released in 1983.
Excel, first released in 1987, is a
development of the early spreadsheets and therefore cannot strictly be
classified as an invention. Excel is far more powerful than VisiCalc but that
is also a result of development over the years that Microsoft have been working
on the product, and the increase in computing power.
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston never patented the product because software patents were almost unheard of in the 70s.
