I have a computer with Vista installed and with Microsoft spreadsheet rather than Excel and cannot receive Excel xsl douments. When I get one as an attachment I am told to go to Set association and set up the link to my preadsheet. When I try to do this I cannot find the page which enables me to put in xsl. I can find all the other terminators (wrong word) and their associations. What must I do.

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.

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.

What is a workbook?


A workbook is a spreadsheet file. By default, each workbook in Excel contains three pages or worksheet

The term spreadsheet is often used to refer to a workbook, when in actual fact, spreadsheet refers to the computer program, such as Excel.

So, strictly speaking, when you open the Excel spreadsheet program it loads an empty workbook file consisting of three blank worksheets for you to use.

Who invented microsoft excel/


Excel is 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.

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
