Microsoft Works 8.0 Spreadsheet Problem (Vista)

I recently installed Windows Vista Service Pack 1. I can get into the Microsoft Works Task Launcher, and Works Spreadsheet. The problem I am having is: "I cannot open any of my previous files." I am able to create a new file, save it and reopen it, but I need to access my old files for important information. Can anyone help me?

Microsoft has abandoned support for XP. Given how buggy and vulnerable to attack it is, you would be far better off installing W8.1 or even W7, for which you will have to pay

There has been an issue similar to this seen with people whose windows xp recieved service pack 3, or vista service pack 1.
From what I understand, microsoft has pulled the updates due to issues with their own products. If your system has recieved the service pack, contact MS Tech support to have the service pack update removed.

You should be able to click on the cell (or highlight the range), right click on the area and select Format Cells from the menu list that pops up. Does that work?
