Check the Properties of the file and see what it says.

Go to the directory where the file is located.
Possibly "My Documents"

Select the file, but do not open it, just highlight it.
Right click on the file.
A window/menu should open.
At the bottom click on Properties
Another window/menu should open.
Near the top will be two lines:

Type of File:
Should say something like, Microsoft Office Excel Document.

Open With:
Should say Microsoft Excel

If the Open With: does NOT say MS Excel
click the Change button next to it and select MS Excel from the window/menu that should appear.
