You can't. You have to install Excel onto your computers. You can then use that programme to create files, which in turn you save to your computer hard drive.

Once done you can write CD's , DVD's or more popular for file transfer a USB flash drive.

Should you wish to continue with CD's, then I suggest you use CD-RW (Re-writeable CD's)

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

Windows 7 program windows xl wont open file


Are you using the same version of Microsoft Excel that you created the file with? If you created in in a newer version, then open it in the newer version, and go File > Save as.. and save it as an older version of the excel document, that is backwards-compatible.

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.

Have files on a CD that are read only. How can I remove read only so I can make changes to the files. Thank you.


You can use the xcopy command to remove the read-only attribute while you are copying files from a CD-ROM. Xcopy.exe resets the read-only attributes unless you specify otherwise by using the /k switch (this switch copies attributes). To use this method:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
  3. Type xcopy drive letter:\*.* destination /e /h, where drive letter is the CD-ROM drive letter and destination is the path to the destination for the files, and then press ENTER. For more information about command-line switches for Xcopy.exe, type xcopy /? at a command prompt.

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,

I WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE MY EXCEL FILE IN READ ONLY MODE


amjbritto,

There are two ways to do this, depending on what extent you want to protect the spreadsheet.

Windows Read-Only method:
  1. Save and Close the Excel file.
  2. Using Windows Explorer, locate the Excel file in its folder.
  3. Right-click on the file name
  4. Click on "Properties" at the bottom of the drop-down window.
  5. Check the [x] Read-Only box and [OK]
  6. * DONE *
Excel "Protect" Method:

  1. Open the Excel spreadsheet that you want to protect
  2. On the top menu, select [Tools]
  3. Click [Protection] on the drop-down menu
  4. Select [Protect Workbook]
  5. Check [x]Structure and [x]Windows
  6. Enter a password if you wish, but remember it!
  7. Click [OK]
  8. Save and close the spreadsheet and test the protection.
  9. *DONE *

How do I unlock an excel spreadsheet which has password protection (lost). I am using Mac Excel not Windows


A) Open document > Select edit menu > choose select all > then choose copy from edit menu.
Open new document > edit menu> paste.
Select tools menu> choose options> window opens with options. Select form different tabs the edit tab> make sure that al desired boxes are selected.
Select save tab>choose and mark box>ask about properties
accept or Apply options and close.
Save new document different name. When saving it should ask if you want to save properties> choose not save. Maybe it asks if you want to modify properties> choose yes> select box archive amongst read only, hidden or archive.
If this does not work.
B)There are many 3rd party utilities which claim to reset forgotten word password:
The program that I recommend is the Excel Password Recovery 5.0 It recovers/removes the "Password to Open" and "Password to Edit" for you to view and edit the document freely.
